Tracing my Italian Family name (Fratto)?

I am trying to trace my Italian family name back as far as I can go. I don't need to trace my lineage EXACTLY. I just want to know if we came from any prominent families back in Italian history. The name is "Fratto". And all I know as I know, we are from Calabria, Italy. After that, it all gets foggy.
Thanks

"Fratto" is a family name quite common in the Southern Italian region of Calabria, particularly in the cities of Catanzaro and Soveria Simeri.
