  2. Etymological origin of Italian surname: Locuratolo

Etymological origin of Italian surname: Locuratolo


The Curatolo, absolutely rare, should be due to an incorrect transcription of Locuratolo, which is typical of the area between Bari and Potentino, of Bari and Minervino Murge in the Bari area and of Melfi and Potenza in the Potenza area, and which should derive from the Calabrese dialectal term curatolo, in turn derived from the Greek Byzantine term kourator (steward), indicating the person responsible for a farm or a cattle farm, a task probably carried out by the progenitor (see CURATOLA).
