Zappia Early Origins



The surname Zappia was first found in Mantua, anciently Mantova, a fortified city of Lombardy, capital of the province of Mantua. In 568 the Lombards took Mantua, lost it and recovered in 601. It passed to the Norman Geoffry, Duke of Lorraine in the 11th century but afterwards reverted to the Lombard League. Frederico II was first Duke of Mantua. 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.
