Cestara, very rare, it seems of Colliano (SA), Cestari has an important nucleus in Trentino, in Emilia between the provinces of Modena and Ferrara and in the Rovigoto, one in Turin and one between Naples and Salerno, Cestaro is Venetian with a strain perhaps not secondary in the Neapolitan and Salerno areas, they should all derive from the trade of basket weavers or basket sellers, traces of these surnames of which we find in Veneto since the 1600s, for example a Cestaro family is mentioned among the rich landowners of Cividale, in 1700 we find in Naples a tal Jacopo Cestaro master of painting.
