Etymological origin of Italian surname: Carosso


Carossi, absolutely rare of the Milanese, Carosso is typical of western Piedmont, of Turin and of the Cuneo area in particular, should derive from the medieval name Carosus of which we have an example in a historical writing of the year 825: "... Interea quidam Veneticorum , id est Carosus tribunus and Victor nonnullique alii, facta conspiratione, Iohannem ducem, to Venecia pepulerunt et Carosus hanc usurpavit dignitatem ... ", traces of this surname can be found, for example, in 1626 in Chiavenna (SO) where the expenses are discussed from the community of Clavenna for the lodging and provisioning of the bishop of Captain Carossi from 5 November 1621 to 19 March 1622.
