Lame, extremely rare, seems to be Venetian, it could be a transcription error of Zoppas, which is definitely Trevisano, particularly of Susegana, Conegliano, Vittorio Veneto and Nervesa della Battaglia, Zoppi presents more stocks, in Milan, Lodi and Crema, in the Piacenza and Parma areas. in the strip that goes from Genoa to Florence, Zoppo, typical of the centrosud, of Rome, Iserniense, Neapolitan, Salerno, Foggia and Tarantino, should all derive from nicknames linked to a physical defect of lameness.
