China has a Palermo lineage and a secondary Roman one, Cinella, almost unique, is of the Neapolitan, Cinel is typically Venetian, of the Trevisano, in Castelfranco Veneto, Crocetta of MOntello and Montebelluna and of Vicenza, in Rossano Veneto and Cassola, with a small stock even in the Venetian area of San Michele al Tagliamento, Cinelli is widespread throughout the Italian peninsular, but in Tuscany and Lazio, Cinello is specific to the Udine area, with a strain also in the Treviso area, Cini is typically Tuscan, where it is widespread. , but with stocks also in the Bolognese, Venetian and Roman, Cinini has a stock in Livorno and some presence in the Brescia area, Cino has a stock in the Neapolitan, one in the Bari area and one in the Lecce area, one in the Cosenza area and one in Sicily, especially in the Agrigento and nisseno. All these surnames should derive from simple aheretic forms or hypocoristic, even dialectal, of a hypocoristic of names like Pace, Rinuccio, Leone, Barone or other similar, Pace for example become first Pacino, in its hypocoristic form, then Cino for apheresis , and in some cases for a further hypocoristic Cinello or Cinino. additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Cinella, very rare, has a stock in the Macerata area and one in the Neapolitan, Cinelli, practically panitaliano, has a greater concentration between the north and the central north of the country, with main nucleuses in the Brescia area, Bologna and Florence, in the Grosseto area, in the Pistoia area, in the Siena area, in the Frosinone area, in the Roman area and in the Ascoli area, but non-secondary nuclei are also found in the Benevento area, in the Salerno area and in the Cosenza area, Cinello, much rarer than the previous one, is widespread especially in the Udine area and , to a lesser extent, in the Treviso area, Cinellu, which is also very rare, is specific to Sardinia, where it is mostly found in Cagliari and Sassari, all these surnames derive from the nickname of the medieval name Cino, born for apheresis from names such as Alcino, Baroncino, Leoncino, Pacino, etc. It is therefore a question of the surnames of the personal names of the founders.
