PITTAU

A surname typical of southern Sardinia. additions provided by Stanislao Most probably it is the diminutive of Sebastiano that in Sardinian is called Pittanu and in narrow Campidanese is pronounced Pittau with the last very nasal syllable -au. It is typical of the Campidanese not to pronounce the -n- read and transform them into typically nasal sounds, for example: pan, in Cagliari it is called Tiànu, in Campidanese Tiàu with the nasal-au. additions provided by Giuseppe Concas PITTAU: derives from Pittanu> Pittâu: in the Sardinian language the intervocalic fall of the "enne" is frequent, such as angiôi, sirbôi, marjâi, etc. which however maintain the nasal in the pronunciation. In some parts of central Sardinia, Pittànu is a hypocoristic example of Sebastiano, who here in Medio Campidano commonly becomes Bastiànu. The fact that the surname Pittâu is particularly widespread in Villacidro leads us to two hypotheses, or that Sebastiano's nickname was once Pittanu also in Villacidro, in the Middle Campidano, or that the founder of the Pittâu, had barbaricine origins, like so many others , generally breeders of sheep and goats, from the inhabited centers of the territory of Mount Linas,
