ZIGANTE

Typical of the Zigante Venezie is specific to Trieste, but is also present in Udinese and Trevisano, the possible assumptions about the origin of the surname are that it is a nickname originated from the high stature of the founder named for this reason the Zigante ( Giant), another hypothesis instead contemplates the possibility of a connection with the verb Veneto zigar (scream, rant) to indicate perhaps a particularly choleric character.
