SCALZI | SCALZO | SCALZONE

Scalzo seems to have two nuclei, in the province of Caltanissetta and in central Calabria, where we also find Scalzi, while Scalzone is extremely rare, and specific to the Neapolitan, can all derive from a nickname referring to the habit of going on foot Bare by the ancestor, but, much more likely to be derived from the fact of being the families near or to the service of convents of nuns or Friars Discalced Augustinians, we must also bear in mind that in the late medieval period with the Barefoot term was also meant a dirty and ragged individual of bad repute, and that in this case the surname would assume a different meaning, Scalzone could also derive from the apheresis of the word scoundrel.
