Imagines Maiorum - Ancestors from Campania

Villano

 

This is a fairly common Italian surname (302 comuni),  especially in central Campania.  In standard Italian,  a villano is more of a boorish or rude person then a villain in the English sense.  In Latin,  however,  a villa is a farm,  and a villicus is a farmer.  I believe the three patriarchs below,  Giacomo,  Tommaso,  and Cosimo,  were brothers or cousins.
