Bucalossi is typically Tuscan, widespread in Florence at Castelfiorentino, Gambassi Terme, Certaldo, Empoli, Vinci and Florence, at Cascina and Pomarance in Pisa and at Poggibonsi and San Gimignano in the Siena area, with a stock also in Rome, should derive from a nickname, probably attributed to the progenitors because of their indigence which forced them to be content with stripping the bones to feed themselves, feeding on marrow.
