Cinnamon, very widespread, has strains in Liguria, Piedmont, Lombardy, Rimini, Ascoli, Viterbo, Rome and Latin, in the Salerno, Bari and Taranto areas, in the Vibo Valentia, and, above all, in Sicily, where it is widespread in the Palermo and Agrigento areas, in the nisseno, in the Catania area, in the Syracuse area and in the Ragusa area, with presences also in the Trapani and Messina areas, Cannelli has a stock in the Arezzo area at Terranuova Bracciolini and Montevarchi, and at Grosseto, a stock in Assisi in Perugia, one in Monterubbiano in the Ascoli area, which could derive from the toponym Cannelli in Teramo, and one in Rome, Cannello, almost unique, should be due to errors in transcription of the first, which together with the second could derive from nicknames based on diminutive forms of the term cane, both referring to the tool of the vinai, and to the plants of a cane field, a possible connection with cinnamon (highly perfumed bark very used in the Middle Ages above all for aroma to make wine).
