Amapane, an extremely rare surname, of which there is a presence in Pavia, but which would seem to have originated from the Bari area, perhaps from Acquaviva delle Fonti, as we can infer from a register of the University of Bremen: "14 Iunii 1696 Joseph Dominicus Amapane, ex kingdom Neapolitano oriundus, ex civitate Barii Proselytus, linguae Italicae magister ex decree 9 Iunii constitutus, adeoque gratis inscriptus. ", and from a recording of 1722 in Rutigliano always in the Bari:" ... Rutiliani 1722. Acta super petitione legions pious montis fundati for quondam diaconum Vitum Pappalepore inter magnificam Anna Amapano and canonicum don Ignatium Pappalepore ... ", there are traces of the de Amapano also in Piedmont, in the area of Borgaro Torinese, traces of a wealthy family dating back at least to 1500, the surname Amapani, almost unique, has a Bari presence, should derive from the Trojan name Amopaon mentioned by Homer in the Iliad as the son of Polyaemon.
