Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cervigliere


CERVIGLIERE

Cervigliere would seem to have disappeared in Italy, it should derive from a nickname derived from the fact that the progenitor used precisely the cervigliere, a sort of medieval helmet of which we have an example in the 1300 Lucca announcements: "... Et.tucti li mercadanti et artifici , in any door of the city of Lucca they live, as they had casks or merchants in the district where the fire was lit, and you can call them men of that door where the fire was opened, freely and without pain they can draw to extinguish the fire, to get out and take away the merchants' signs, without any offensive or defendable arms, except with Pavese or Rotella, a leader or segure, to that penalty which, by its will, would have wanted ... ".
