Curridori is typically Sardinian from Villacidro in the Middle Campidano, with a stock also in Vallermosa in Cagliari. additions provided by Giuseppe Concas CURRIDORI: runner and comes from the Latin cùrrere = run, go in a hurry. Andài cùrri, cùrri = to go running. Su cùrri, cùrri is the thousand feet or any insect that walks with a certain speed: su babbalòtti. Cuaddu curridòri = racehorse; it is also called the young man who often goes behind the skirts with pleasure! Currèra = race. For example, when a child enters the house in a hurry, he finds his mother asking him, "E ita est custa currèra"? = "Why so much haste"? Currèra a trivas = race. Sa scurrentzia = dysentery. As a surname we did not find it in the ancient documents, where it is present as a noun: su curritòre was the courier, the postman, who delivered the letters and was often also the auctioneer. Currently the surname is present in 25 Italian Municipalities, of which 13 in Sardinia: Villacidro 127, Vallermosa 15, Cagliari 5, Maracalagonis 3, Domusnovas 3, etc. It is clearly a native of Villacidro and the runners of the other centers also come from this. There are two hypotheses: 1) that the surname Curridori is derived from the ancient curritòre = courier, postman; 2) that comes from Tuscany, province of Grosseto, where the largest stock of the surname Corridori is attested, passed in Sardinia to Curridori.
