The "Eighteen Families" of Loveno Grumello II
























I had put up a piece years ago entitled 'The "Eighteen Families" of Loveno-Grumello', and I wanted to put a sampling of Camunian surnames from the comunes that my grandparents came from before migrating to the Ironwood-Hurley area along the Montreal River. "Loveno Grumello" are two villages within the comune of Paisco Loveno, which are both under one administration. There are only 199 inhabitants today in Paisco Loveno, which is made up of the villages of Ardinghelli, Case del Longo, Case di Bornia, Grumello, Loveno, and Perdonico. The comune of Prestine has 390 inhabitants today. Some of the old family names have disappeared into one of the big Italian or European cities, or into the United States, Canada, Argentina, etc.

Surnames today in Paisco Loveno include Armeni, Baldoni, Berardi, Bordoni, Bressanelli, Brianza, Brunelli, Calufetti, Caluffetti, Calvetti, Capelli, Caratti, Catotti, Chiapparini, Cicchitti, Contenti, Curcelli, Degani, Ferrari, Filafusi, Fioroni, Franchini, Ghenzi, Ghirardi, Lucchi, Mansini, Manzini, Marzi, Mascherpa, Mastaglia, Mastiglia, Mattia, Mitterpergher, Moraschetti, Morelli, Moreschetti, Moreschi, Moreschini, Omassoli, Palazzi, Pangrazio, Pantaleoni, Salvetti, Somenzi, Sorosina, Zigliana, and Zucchi.
