      "bergamino", così erano chiamati i pastori che scendevano con le greggi verso le marcite della Padani dai monti della bergamasc
      - as I understand it, this means
      "bergamino", as the shepherds (pastori) were called who came down with their herds to the markets of (? the) Padani from the mountains of Bergamasca - possibly "the Bergamasca", if it's the name of the Bergamo region.
      As you see, Italian tends to use lower case, but I'd guess that "bergamino" and "bergamasca" come from the name Bergamo.
      Anyway, you've moved on to various cheese legends...
      Happy New Year!
