Scardamaglia has a nucleus in Rome, a small strain in Herculaneum (NA) where there is significantly the shape Scardamaglio, while the most important strain is Lamezia Terme (CZ), should derive from nicknames originated or the craft of Scardaxatore (the one who uses I unwrap it to refine the wool) or even in a broad sense one that spreads behind people's shoulders. Additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Scardamaglia, present at very low frequency from the north to the south of the country, has a main nucleus in Catanzaro and a secondary in Neapolitan, Scardamaglio, very rare, seems to be originating in Herculaneum (NA), both These surnames derive from the term Scardamaglia or scardamaglio (otherwise called Cardalana), with the meaning of Scardasatore, carer, the one who deals with the charding of wool or other textile fibres. It is therefore a question of the cognominizations of the names of trade attributed to the founder.
