Cangi seems to have a fundamental stock in the Arezzo area and one in the area of Potenza, Cangio, absolutely rare, should be from the Foggia area, deriving from the Latin cognomen Cangius, an example of which we find in a sale deed of the Xth century drawn up at Sant'Elpidio (AP ), where we read: "... pro-collusion mode apud infimae latinitatis scriptores usurpatum fuit, ut testatur Cangius in hac voce ...", or even in the Nova Chronica del Villani where in the book VI ° par XXIX ° we read: " ... and for a divine vision their emperor and lord made a poor state smith, whose name was Cangius, who was raised up a poor felt emperor ... ".
