Alberighi Early Origins



The surname Alberighi was first found in Tuscany (Italian: Toscana), a region in central Italy, where this ancient noble family held the castle Conti Tuscolani, in 974 when Alberto Alberici acquired the city of Piceno in Romagna. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.

Alberighi Spelling Variations



In comparison with other European surnames, Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms. They reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each with its own distinctive features.

Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes and church officials often spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules.
