CENGIA

Cengia is typically Venetian, of San Giovanni Ilarione, Verona, Monteforte d'Alpone and Castelnuovo del Garda in the Verona area, of Monte di Malo in the Vicenza area and of Feltre in the Belluno area, it should derive from a Venetian dialectal name based on the Venetian term cengia (belt , the strip of leather or fabric three holds back the saddle or the saddle of the beasts of burden), a nickname probably attributed to progenitors who made the muleteers by trade, according to another hypothesis could instead be of Cimbrian origin and derive from the term tschènghel ( ciglione, cengia) and indicate the origin of the founders from an area represented by a grassy belt overhanging the rocks of a mountain.
