The surname Bertone was first found in the city of Ferrara, where Giacomo Bertazzi was assistant to Pope Sergio II in 845.

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.
