Colucci is typical of the central southern peninsular, but with stocks also in Tuscany and Emilia, Coluccini has a stock in the Lucca area, in Pietrasanta, Camaiore and Massarosa, and small strains in the Macerata, Terni and Rome, Coluccino, very rare, is typical of Avellino, Coluccio much rarer seems to have two strains in the Avellino area and in the Reggio area, deriving from the medieval name Colutius and also from the apheresis of hypocoristic modifications of the name Nicola. This name was already brought before 1000 as shown by an inscription on the front of the church of San Matteo in Scala (SA) on the Amalfi coast: "DEVOTIONE COLUTII DE BONETO - VIRI SENATORIS ANNO 963" and in Florence in 1300 a notary and judge carried that name: "... Tragedy quedam de casu Composite Cesene for Ser Colutium de Stignano ....".
