CAVEDINI

Cavedini, very rare, is specific to the Verona area, Verona and San Martino Buon Albergo, it should derive from a nickname originated from the Veneto word cavedin (a container where salination of water is carried out for food preservation and by extension saline ), perhaps to indicate that the job of the progenitor was precisely to put food in brine in order to preserve them and probably sell them, it cannot however be excluded the possibility of a derivation from the name of the village of Cavedine in the Trentino, even if its distance from Verona makes this hypothesis less likely.
