CATAVOLO

Catavolo, almost unique, is specific to the Latin language, it should derive from a nickname based on the ancient Greek word ????????? katàbolos (in Greek the pronunciation of the letter beta (?) corresponds to a -v-), which means maritime warehouse, warehouse, and seraglio, probably meaning that the progenitor was or was responsible for such a structure, or worked there.
