Conte di Salvatore
- Giuseppe: "You are telling me that I, Giuseppe, Conte di Salvatore, will have to face my friends knowing that my son is a scioparto? A ne'er-do-well? An idler who makes no useful contribution to Florence?"
- Damon: "Apparently. If you can call those who fawn on you in the hope that you will lend them money your friends."

Giuseppe Salvatore, Conte di Salvatore (fl. 15th century) was an Italian nobleman of the 15th and 16th centuries. He and his wife had two sons, named Damon and Stefan, who Giuseppe raised after his wife's premature death. He wanted Stefan to marry Baron von Swartzschild's daughter, Katarina, but both brothers fell for her, leading her to turn them into vampires.
