The Mantovani surname is a habitational name taken on from the name of the city of Mantua.

Mantovani Early Origins



The surname Mantovani was first found in Modena (Etruscan: Mutna; Latin: Mutina; Modenese: Ṃdna), 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. It changed hands many times between Church and Duchy. In 1859 the inhabitants declared in favor of unity with the Kingdom of Italy. The Ducal Palace is a notable. Rich in art the city has many museums and galleries. 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.
