Campati has a stock in Rome and one in Schiavi (CH) additions provided by Fabio Paolucci At the base of the surname is the past participle of the verb campare, in the sense of escaping, living, surviving, given as a nickname to the progenitor because he probably escaped a calamity natural or a terrible epidemic. It would be to exclude the derivation of the surname from the term span, an architectural element included between two consecutive supports or piers. The probable derivation from the agricultural activity or from the collection of taxes is still to be taken into consideration: the field income is the agricultural income or even the tax imposed on agricultural incomes.
