COTRUFFO | COTRUFO

Cotruffo, practically unique, should be due to an incorrect transcription of Cotrufo, which has a stock in Naples, a very small one in Matera and one in Puglia in Manfredonia in the Foggia area and in Acquaviva delle Fonti and Bari in the Bari area, and that should derive from a Greek name or nickname based on an alteration of the ancient Greek term ???????? kottyfos (blackbird).
