Chiavegati, almost unique, is probably due to transcription errors of Chiavegato, which is a typical Venetian surname, specific to Verona and Verona, to Bovolone, Gazzo Veronese, San Giovanni Lupatoto, Cerea and Isola della Scala, with a stock also Taglio di Po in the Rovigoto and in Padua, should derive from the Venetian term archaic chiavegato used to indicate the person in charge of closing and opening the gate or irrigation of irrigation canals or navigable, but it must also be remembered that with the term chiavegato or chiavagato it also indicated, as a slang meaning, that of good-for-nothing.
