Etymological origin of Italian surname: Porta


LA | LAPORTA | PORTA

The Porta is widespread throughout the south, in Campania, Molise, Apulia, Calabria and above all Sicily, Laporta, decidedly less widespread, has a trietino stock and is well rooted in the whole of Puglia, these surnames should derive from the fact that families resided near the town or city gate, except that they were even the guardians.
