Collura History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The surname Collura was first found in L'Aquila, capital city of the Abruzzo region and of the Province of L'Aquila. Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor and King of Sicily (1194-1250) began the construction of the city and was completed by his son, Conrad IV of Germany in 1254.

One of the first records of the name was Angelini Colucci, a writer in Ascoli in the 12th century.
