Don Francesco del Drago, Marquess of Riofreddo, of the Princes of Antuni and Mazzano, died at Filacciano on 12 May 2011, aged 91.

He was born in 1920, eldest son of Don Clemente and Donna Giacinta del Drago; he was married since 1946 to Maria Piacitelli, with whom he had two daughters, Francesca and Barbara (most sources report the name of the second daughter to be Barbara, although an obituary I've read reported that her name is Elena). Don Francesco was an acknowledged painter.

Don Francesco died less than two months after his brother Don Alessandro, who also died at Filacciano on 24 March 2011.
