The surname seems to be prevalent in the northwest region of Italy in the Province of Torino.

I don't believe the name has a meaning in Italian.

Hi.
I can confirm you Trucano is a surname originally present almost exclusively in the Province of Turin (Piemonte, N-W Italy). Its origin should be in a village called Borgiallo, where it's still present.
As for Colombara, years ago I got in touch with someone with that surname: he lives in your same town (and, if I correctly remember, he too has a Trucano in his ancestry tree). Here's the link to his profile here: joec96.
Hope this helps.

Ciao,
Maurizio
