Favero History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Italian surname Favero is derived from the Latin word "faber," meaning "craftsman," and as such, it was likely an occupational name first born by someone who was an iron worker, or some kind of craftsman.

Early Origins of the Favero family

The surname Favero was first found in Modena (Etruscan: Mutna; Latin: Mutina; Modenese: Mòdna), a city in Emilia capital of the province of Modena. It became Roman in 215 B.C. It was successfully defended by Brutus against Mark Anthony.

This very ancient family dates back to 1185 when Bertaldo Fabri was recorded in Vicenza, a city in northeastern Italy. Later in 1217 in Bologna, one of the family was granted the title of count from the Duke of Parma. In 1256, Bernardo de Fabris to escape the tyranny of Ecelino, emigrated from his homeland and took refuge in Padua. Another branch of the family was Fabri of Calvene, a branch of the previous one, in 1282 they went to live in Calvene and were called Fabri di Berica, because they moved to Vicenza. [1]
