There are several possible derivations for the Saccano surname: the Saccano name evolved from an old Tuscan personal name, Saccus; it came from the word "sacco" meaning "a sack," and was an occupational name for a maker of sacks or bags; it was a habitational name taken on from the place named Sacco in Salerno province. It is most likely that the name evolved independently into a surname from these sources.

Saccano Early Origins



The surname Saccano was first found in Savona anciently Savo, a seaport in Liguria, the capital of the province of Savona. Its history dates back 109 B.C but little remains of the old town. The castle was built by the Genoese in 1542 near the old cathedral. The palace is the Dolla Rovere built by Cardinal Giullio dell Rovere. It became a seat for iron making and has iron foundries, shipbuilding brass, tinplate, sulphur mills and glassworks. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, and 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. Little is known of their ancient history in Savona before the 11th century. Giovanni Sacco branched to the republic of Genoa, became Galeazzo Viscount, Duke of Milan in 1374. This distinguished family flourished in the region for the next two centuries and became doges of the republic of Genoa (Genova).
