Tarsia would seem specific to the Cosentino, with strains also in the Reggio Calabria and in the Materano, should derive from the homonymous country of the Cosentino, but in some cases could derive from the Norman strain of the noble family Tarsia that in 1083 would have founded the city and that He held the lordship until 1800. Having been the Normans to bring the speciality of tarsia or inlay on wood or mineral is likely that the surname of this noble family is in some way connected with that type of workmanship.
