". Supplements provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Oppezzo is a surname sparsely present in Lombardy, especially in the western area. The surname is classified by Emidio De Felice as a variant (Piedmontese and Lombard) from the" Opizzi "lineage. It is of German derivation, dates back to an "Opizo", documented in the tenth century in the Latin form "Opitius", and was formed through adaptations on the root "audha", which indicates possession, wealth, power.
