CAMATA | CAMATI | CAMATO

Today Camata has a strain between Venetian and Treviso, but there should also have been one in the south of Sicily, between Syracuse, Ragusa and Naples, Camati, almost disappeared in Italy, would seem to have two places of origin, one in the south of the country, probably in Calabria and one in the Modena area, Camato is almost unique, it should be from southern Italy, should derive from a nickname referring to the job of the founders, probably originated from the Greek term ????? camai (earth) or better still from the Greek term ??????? kamatos (fatigue), meaning that probably the progenitors were agricultural workers or at least men of labor.
