Bassetti, typical of the centronord, particularly widespread in the Milanese, Trentino, Umbria and Rome provinces, Bassetto is decidedly Venetian, with maximum concentration in the Treviso area, Basses is absolutely Panitalian although with maximum concentration in the north, Bassini, well rooted in Lombardy, especially in the Brescia and Emilia regions, especially in the Bolognese area, has strains also between Arezzo and Perugia, Bassino is specific to Turin, Basso has a very large presence in the north, in Piedmont, Lombardy and above all Veneto, with significant presences also in Lazio, Puglia, Campania and Sicily, Bassotti has a Marchese lineage in the Ancona area of Jesi and Ancona and in the Pesaro area at Mondolfo and Fano, but the most important nucleus is in Rome, they can have different origins deriving from the Latin cognomen Bassus, either directly that through hypocoristic, as we can see in an Instrumentum venditionis of 1502 in Bergamo where a Bassettus de Gerardis of the Cost is quoted a, or deriving also from the nickname with reference to the short stature. A Lodigiano branch of the Bassi family appears since 1500, a noble family that gave Decurions to the city. (the Decurions were the Councilors of the noble consultation of the city), in the second half of the 1600s in Trento we find the Chancellor Claudius Vigilius Bassettus cancellarius.
