Etymological origin of Italian surname: Mosti


Mosti is typically Tuscan, of Massa in particular, with a stock also in Carrara and Montignoso and Pontedera in Pisa, Mosto, extremely rare, seems to be typical of the Genoese, with ancient traces also in the territories of the Venetian Republic with the noble Da Mosto originating from Padua or perhaps of Oderzo (TV) of which only very few descendants have remained, should derive from the medieval name Mosto of which we have an example in this writing of 1510: "The part of daring to take was Luca Miani, quondam sier Anzolo, fo taken castelan a la Scalla, and fo wounded and left struck by a brazo, the Castelanaria of Castel Nuovo di Quer, in his life, with ducati 5 of salary per mexe and no more, and other gifts etc. And by the year 1450, the offices of Castelania were not destined to give the castle of La Saracinescha of Padoa to the Malipieri, that of Mestre to a Michiel, that of Este to a Mosto, amazati to the war of turcho etc. ..: ".
