CAMPANA | CAMPANI | CAMPANINI

Very common throughout Italy Campana, Campani is in the area that includes Reggio, Modena and Tuscany, mainly northern Campanini, which has its origins in Emilia and Lombardy. These surnames derive either from a nickname linked to the trade of bell-ringer (modified from the dialect) or from bell-maker or from the Campania origin or toponyms like Campana (CS). hypotheses provided by D. Campanini the origin of Campanini is absolutely not to be connected to the bell but to the trade of camparo, that is the one who opened the locks for the irrigation of the fields, also called camparèn in Emilian dialect and then modified into campanèn then Campanini.
