Bumbaco / Vumbaca / Vumbaco. From the greek bombyx, indicating the silkworm. The surname (such as those arising from the greek) is very old, and clearly indicates an ancestor engaged in breeding of silkworms, or generally in commerce or in the production of silk, widespread activity in our land --Monasterace, Calabria--, where it met a first decay with the expulsion of the Jews (holders of trade) in the 16th century, and then in the 20th century, with the introduction of synthetic fabrics, it was the final collapse of the industry.
