VACALEBRE

Extremely rare, it could be specific to the area of the Strait of Messina, with presences also in the valleys south of Piedmont (Brig Alta and Olivetta San Michele), according to some derives from a grecanic term with the meaning of bad flour, but The most accredited hypothesis indicates that the surname should derive from the Provencal word vaca = cow, cow and due = type of Breton cow, and be the result of an emigration of an Occitan nucleus to Guardia Piemontese (CS) in Calabria and neighboring countries.
