The distinguished surname Degasperi can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Venice. The people of this region were originally known only by a single name, but it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves, as populations grew and travel became more frequent. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and patronymic surnames, derived from the father's given name were the most common type of family name adopted in the region of Venice. The Italian surname Degasperi came from the personal name Gaspare, derived from the Latin name Gasparus, and ultimately derived from "kaspar," a Persian word meaning "treasurer" and name of one of the three Magi.

Degasperi Early Origins



The surname Degasperi was first found in Vicenza, anciently known as Vicetia, a town in Venetia, capital of the province of Vicenza. It was conquered by the Venetians in 1405. It has many beautiful palaces and churches, galleries and museums. The cathedral is Gothi c. The original church SS.Felice e Fortunato was built in 975 but has been much altered. It is notable for its development painters, architects, sculptors and scholars. Natives were Trissino, Palladio, Pigafetta, Fogazzaro, Mantegna, Montagna, Speranza, Scamozzi and Buoncosiglio. 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.
