Barila is almost unique, Barilari has a lineage in La Spezia and one between Rimini and Pesaro, Barilaro and Barillaro have a stock in Turin, one in the Genoese, one in the Roman area and one in Calabria in particular in the Reggio area, Barillari has a stock in Turin, a small one in Genoa, the most consistent nucleus in the Ferrara area, a strain in the Roman dialect and one between Catanzaro and Crotone, Barile is Panitalian, with greater concentration in the southern peninsular, Barili has a Lombard lineage, especially in the Cremona and Parma areas, Barilla, much rare, has a stock in the Parma area and one in the Reggio area, where it is probably a form altered by transcriptional errors of the surname Barillà, Barilli is widespread throughout Emilia, from Piacenza to Bologna, in particular in Bologna, all these surnames should derive from the fact of being the forefather a craftsman producing barrels, the shape with the double elle is archaic, as we also see in Teofilo Folengo's Baldus: "...

Zanfinus was Lanfranco Barilli of Bergamo, a farmer, and again in a writing of 1577:" ... heard long ecc.ti Phisici, the ceroici .. ..et Pietro Brocco, and Rinaldo Spetiali Barilli and interuenienti for their paratico et ueduti orders in this regard of the inclined city of Venetia, Rome, Padua, Milan, Pavia et of other cities of Italy '...
