Carusi History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The surname Carusi is a common occupational name for a person who was an apprentice. The name can be traced back to the Old Italian word "caruso," which meant "a young apprentice."

Early Origins of the Carusi family


The surname Carusi was first found in Piacenza, anciently Placentia, a town of Emilia, capital of the province of Piancenza. It was founded as a Roman colony in 218 B.C before being occupied by Goths, Franks, and Lombards, before becoming a free city and part of the Lombard League in the 12th century. Pier Fortugno Caruso was a cavalier in 1026 in the service of Federigo II. 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.
