Filippo Argenti appears as a character in the fifth circle of Hell in the Inferno, the first part of Dante's Divine Comedy. Filippo is among the wrathful in the river Styx, and accosts Dante as the latter crosses the Styx. Early commentators recount various incidents to explain the antipathy between Dante and Filippo:
Filippo's children were: Giovanni Argenti & Salvatore Argenti. Salvatore travelled to Spain and first was established in Barcelona and his descendents in Valencia, where his grandson Salvatore was established in the small village of Navarres.
Filippo is then torn into pieces by the other wrathful in the river Styx after this encounter with Dante and Virgil.
