Cracchi, very rare, is from Bologna, Cracco is typically Venetian, from Verona and Vicenza, especially from Valdagno in the Vicenza area, but also from Cornedo Vicentino, Arzignano, Vicenza, Brendola, Chiampo, Trissino, Brogliano, Altissimo and Sovizzo always in the Vicenza area. Verona, Vestenanova, San Martino Buonalbergo and Tregnago in the Verona area, Gracchi, absolutely rare, is present here and there in northern Italy, Gracco, slightly less rare, would seem to have a small stock in Friuli and one in Neapolitan, should derive from the Latin cognomen Cracchus or Gracchus, of which we have several examples, one of which is this: ".. Tiberius Cracchus cum comitia consultaria habuisset, dicerentque Etrusci augures rem in auspicious experiments vitio Coss. Creatos fuisse, Gracchusque ut ineptos et insanos Etruscos incesseret, abiens in provinciam Senatui rescripsit, veridicos, not autem insanos Etruscos esse. .. ".
