Carrozza is widespread throughout the centrosud, Carrozzi is specific to the city of L'Aquila and Rome, Carrozzini has a Roman stock, one in Lecce in Galatina, Sogliano Cavour, Maglie, Lecce and Veglie, and one Carrozzino has a stock in Genoa and in Taggia nell'imperiese and one in the Cosentino in Belvedere Marittimo above all, in San Nicola Arcella, in Buonvicino and in Acquappesa, and one in Scalea in the Cosenza area, Carrozzo is typically Apulian, of the provinces of Lecce, Brindisi and Taranto, could derive, directly or through hypocoristic, from nicknames formed by the word carriage (ancient unit of measurement for solids) or tied to a certain wagon or to an event that recalled a wagon modified by the dialect, or even by the fact of leading the progenitor a carriage. We find traces of these surnames in Mesagne in the Brindisi area since the second half of the 1600s with the master mason Antonio Carrozzo originally from the Bari area, called to build a "new swimming pool to preserve the oils" and in the second half of the 1600s in Varese Ligure in the break we find Cesare Carrozzi and Tommaso Carrozzi were among the directors.
