Avolla Early Origins



The surname Avolla was first found in Sardinia (Italian: Sardegna, Sardinian: Sardigna), the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The original inhabitants were Sicels. The Greeks colonized in 735 B. C. Phoenician settlements began in 6th century. Carthaginians arrived 410. Romans arrived, then the Saracens. Then the Norman Conquest said to be Sicily's brightest hour, 1057 A.D and taking 35 years. Without a doubt, the most famous of the family in early times was Saint Andrew (Andrea) Avellino (1521-1608), an Italian saint. Born at Castronuovo, he entered the Order of Theatines. In 1624, he was beatified by Pope Urban VIII, and in 1712 was canonized by Pope Clement XI. He is venerated as patron saint of Naples and Sicily.
