CAPPARI | CAPPERI

Cappari is practically unique, Capers, however absolutely rare, it would seem Emilian, should both derive, directly or through dialectal modifications, from the medieval term magister capparius (a craftsman who produces capes or cloaks), a term of which we have an example in the act of 1228 with which 4300 Pisan citizens swore to maintain the alliance made with Siena, Pistoia and Poggibonsi, one of the subscribers is in fact called Bonifatius capparius.
