The Nastasi surname is a patronymic name created from the personal name Anastasio.

Nastasi Early Origins



The surname Nastasi was first found in Ravenna, a city of Emilia, capital of the province of Ravenna. It dates back to the 2nd century B. C. It came under the dominance of Rome. Augustus made it his fleet port. It fell to the Goths but Justinian sent an army in 535 A.D and restored it to Italy. By the 13th it was independent under the papal states, and generally, except for the French revolution, remained so. It is rich in art, museums, galleries, churches and history. 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.
