Vistarini, very rare, it has a stump in Rivanazzano in the Pavese, with presences in the Lodigiano and in Milan, Vistarino, practically unique, should be due to an error of transcription of the previous one, which should derive from the name of the country of Vistarino in the Pavese, the Whose toponym could derive from the Latin cognomen Vestorinus. The hypothesis of a derivation from a hypothetical phrase of Barbarossa that would have ordered "you'll be" to a knight of his with the order to stop in a locality is devoid of any foundation because Barbarossa would be expressed in Latin hic manete (remain here), or In German Beiton (voice A.A. T became then Bleiben (remain) Hera (voice A.A. T then become hier (here).
