Vezzelli is typically modenese, it should derive from a hypochoristic of the Lombard name Veza or the Latin name Vetius, whose pronunciation was Vezius, of which we have an example in the Classical era: "... Vetius Heliogabalus: Caesaris milites, not accipere, sed give Salutem assuerus... ", or even by a diminutive of the apheresis of the ethnic Helvetius (coming from Helvetia, present-day Switzerland). Additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Vezzelli is a Modenese surname. In the telephone directory of Modena There are at least fifty occurrences. It moves from the staff Latino Vettius, who originated also several place names, since in Roman times the ' gens Vettia ' was one of the most famous and branched. One of the most prestigious sarcophagi of this ' gens ' is precisely preserved in the Museo Lapidario Romano in Modena. Another small strain of this surname is Ligurian and even for it the same derivation is presumable.
