Early Origins of the Arcuri family
The surname Arcuri was first found in Piedmont (Italian: Piemonte, Piedmontese and Occitan: Piemont), a territorial division of northern Italy at the foot of the Alps consisting of the provinces of Alessandria, Cuneo, Novara and Turin. Later Aosta and Vercelli were added and still later, Asti. History is related back to 49 B.C. The house of Savoy rose in 1000 A.D.

To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
