CHIGGI | CHIGGIO

Chiggi is almost unique, Chiggio is specific to Anguillara Veneta in the Rovigoto, they should derive from nicknames based on the Venetian term archaic chiggiar (combing linen, or hemp), probably to indicate that the job of the progenitors was precisely that of yarn finishers of linen or hemp.
