Canepa Early Origins



The surname Canepa was first found in Emilia-Romagna, an administrative Region of Northern Italy, comprising the historical regions of Emilia and Romagna. The region traces its history back to Roman times as the province of Gaule. 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 was in itself a family honor.
