Soncino Bible, Soncino Talmud printed by Soncino family at Soncino city

When I live near Lodi I went to visit Soncino. Soncino is a wonderful little city with a nice castle of Sforza family.
I visited the Casa degli Stampatori (“Printers’ House”) of Soncino family.
There, in 1488, the first complete Jewish Bible in the world was printed.
In internet everywhere you can find Soncino Bible and Soncino Talmud.
I’m not sure that person know that, in this case, Soncino means: printed by Soncino family that lived in Soncino city (then the family went to live to Venice, …).
