Jim, Caino is a small town not far north of the city of Brescia, both municipalities being in the eastern part of the region known as Lombardy.
There is another Lombard city, Bergamo, located about midpoint between Milan and Brescia, a bit north of the EW beeline between them, that was also famed for the production of sword blades.
