Interfuerunt Petratius Segotefredi de Stazona and Iohannes Tedaldi et Vitalis frater eius et Carpanus de Belaxio testes. Ego Gulielmus iudex et misus Federici inperatoris hanc cartam tradidi et scripsi.", name which in turn derives from the name of the carpanus (hornbeam), a tall tree from fifteen to twenty meters with straight posture and elongated foliage, in some cases it could also derive from names of localities characterized precisely by the pres without hornbeams.
