Early Origins of the Zecca family
The surname Zecca was first found in Udine, a town in Venetia and capital of the province of Udine. An old walled city it dates back to early Roman times. There is an old castle (1517) in the center of the town which is now used as a museum and art gallery. The church of S.Maria della Purita is notable with many treasures. The town hall was built in 1448. It was the seat of the Italian command in WWI.

To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
