Stracuzza, extremely rare, seems of Fiumara (RC), Stracuzzi seems of the Messina. Integrations provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Stracuzza, very rare, seems to be originally from the Reggino, Stracuzzi is typical mostly of the Messina, both these surnames derive from the voice of dialect Stracuzza, with the meaning of turtle: the origin of the term It should be sought in the Greek ostrakon, with literally means shell (in reference to the shape of the turtle's dorsal shield). Most likely, then, these are the cognitive nicknames attributed to the ancestor (as slow or, perhaps more properly, lazy people).
