The history of the last name Adduci

The surname ADDUCI originates from Italy, specifically from the southern region of Campania, where it is believed to have first appeared in the early 16th century. The name is derived from the Italian verb "addurre," which means "to bring" or "to lead," suggesting that the original bearers of this name may have been involved in some form of transportation or trade.

One of the earliest recorded instances of the ADDUCI surname can be found in the parish records of the town of Caserta, near Naples, where a certain Antonio Adduci was listed as a resident in the year 1572. This indicates that the name had already established itself in the area by the late 16th century.

In the 17th century, the ADDUCI name appears to have spread to other parts of Campania, as well as neighboring regions such as Lazio and Abruzzo. Several notable individuals bearing this surname emerged during this period, including Giovanni Battista Adduci, a renowned painter from Naples who lived between 1620 and 1688.

By the 18th century, the ADDUCI surname had become more widespread throughout Italy, with branches of the family appearing in cities like Rome and Florence. One notable figure from this era was Francesco Adduci, a philosopher and scholar born in Naples in 1721, who gained recognition for his writings on ethics and moral philosophy.

As the ADDUCI family continued to expand and migrate throughout Italy, they carried their name to new regions and territories. In the 19th century, a branch of the family settled in the island of Sicily, where they established themselves in the city of Palermo. One of the most famous individuals from this Sicilian branch was Giuseppe Adduci, an influential politician and lawyer who lived from 1845 to 1912.

Another noteworthy ADDUCI figure from the 19th century was Lucio Adduci, a military officer born in Rome in 1860. He played a significant role in the Risorgimento, the Italian unification movement, and was awarded several honors for his service.

Throughout its history, the ADDUCI surname has maintained a strong presence in various regions of Italy, with individuals contributing to various fields, including the arts, academia, politics, and military. While the name may have evolved slightly over time, its roots can be traced back to the southern Italian region of Campania, where it first emerged as a marker of identity and lineage.
