CANTIANI | CANTIANO

Cantiani has a small stock in the Ancona area of Serra San Quirico and Fabriano, which could derive from the name of the town of Cantiano in the urban area, a much more consistent stock in Rome and the Roman area and in Ronciglione in the Viterbo area. in Marsicovetere, Cantiano, very very rare, it would seem of Albano Laziale and Rome, they should derive from the Latin cognomen Cantianus, a freed staff of the Gens Cantia, who besides Rome and the Roman had properties also in the Marche and Friuli, we remember with this name San Cantianus Roman martyr beheaded in Friuli in the year 303 under the emperor Diocletian.
