Lisitano is Sicilian, with a stock in Messina and one in Augusta in the Syracuse area, it should derive from an archaic form for Lusitanian, that is to say inhabitant or coming from Lusitania, an ancient region of the Iberian Peninsula that corresponded roughly to the current south central part of Portugal and of Extremadura in Spain, we find traces of this surname in Messina since 1400 when the name of Nicolaus Lisitanus inhabitant of Casale di Larderia di Messina appears in an act.
