Early Origins of the Picarella family
Charlemagne held it. Later it was Venetian. 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 is taken from Picardy, a region in Northern France; it would have been given to a man who came to Italy from Picardy, which explains the higher concentration of the name in the north; France is north-west of Italy; so Tuscany would be one of the first places in Italy that someone coming from France would pass through, especially if they were coming by sea to avoid crossing the mountains.
