Early Origins of the Palisano family
The surname Palisano was first found in Sicily
(Italian: Sicilia), the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, at Giuliano. 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. The name was originally Palici, then Palizzi, and was originally of Genoa in 1296.
