QUINZANI | QUINZANO | QUINZIANI | QUINZIANO

Quinzani, the least rare of these surnames, is typical of the area that includes the Basso Bresciano, the Cremonese and the Piacentino, present in particular in Cremona and Fiorenzuola D'arda in Piacenza, Quinzano, practically unique, is Veneto, Quinziani, almost unique, It would seem Veneto, Quinziano, equally rare, would appear to the Lazio area, Abruzzo, should derive from the italianizations of the Latin cognomen Quinctianus, whose use we bring an example taken from Caio Cornelius Tacitus: "... At Flavius Shāchinus et Afranius Quinctianus, Uterque senatorii Ordinis, contra famam sui, principium so many Facinoris capessivere. Nam dissolute luxu mens et proinde life somno lánguida: Quinctianus Mollitia Corlitudinis; Ibi Ipsa Frequentia, so many decoris testis, Pulcherrimum animum exstimulaverant: nisi with impunity, RETINUISSCT, Magnis always Conatibus adversa. ... ", cognomen typical of the liberti of the Gens Quinctia, or by the name of landed property belonging to them, or of place names containing the Quinzano root, very widespread in Italy, we cite by way of example Quinzano D'oglio in Brescia.
