Over the course of his life, he acquired an extensive fortune that established the rise of the Spada family . His appointment as general treasurer of Romagna and a clever family policy were decisive for the careers of his numerous descendants. In the Roman State Archives there are a number of court files that show that his business conduct did not always correspond to commercial ethics .
The establishment of his family in the Italian aristocracy is largely due to the fact that he enabled his third-born son Bernardino Spada to pursue a career in the curia . Bernardo Spada received the cardinal's hat at the age of 32 and used this influential position to further promote the family.
