R. Isaac b. Moses Formiggini (d. 1788), Sephardi rabbi of Modena, Leghorn, and subsequently Trieste. This scholar's name appears many many times in the works of the HIDA as authoritative in decision making responsa. No published works of his survive. R. Formiggini likewise appears as the approbator of many works published in Italy.

R. Moses b. Zevi Hersch Lipschitz, Ashkenazi rabbi of Modena. Again no known works survive, however, his name repeatedly appears in decisions and approbations of period works. Among the books are the Maphtihot haZohar (Venice 1744); Pahad Yitzhok Part I (Venice 1750); Hemdat Yamim (Leghorn 1762) and many others.
