Comments Anyone with a rare Italian name--go to this website, on the far right-hand side, type in the surname under "cognome" and the city or town under "citta" and hit trova (search). You'll get a list of people by that surname in that town.

You can also go to this website: On the top, click "Cognomi." You can enter your surname on the left-hand side ("cognome") and you'll get a map of Italy showing where this surname is concentrated. It's awesome. And don't let anybody tell you your name isn't Italian unless they've memorized all the phone books in Italy.
