BRISCHETTA | BRISCHETTI | BRISCHETTO

Brischetta, very rare, has a small stock in Piazza Armerina in the Enna area, Brischetti, extremely rare, is from the Catania area, Brischetto is typical of the Catania area, Acireale, Catania, Aci Sant'Antonio, Mascali and Santa Venerina, these surnames should derive from a hypocoristic form of the Catalan term brisca (rogue, rascal), with the meaning of birbantello, but according to another theory it would be a supernominal origin based on the Sicilian term brischettu (the part of the anterior quarter of the carcass of the sheep or of the ram ), in this case it might refer to shepherd progenitors.
