not true. what if someone had an umbrella and you wondered where it came from? this sentence would make more sense in past tense but we haven't learned that yet.

"The umbrella comes from the man"... Does it really sound pretty useful to you? :)

The umbrella could be a gift from the man. If a man you don't know buys you an umbrella :D

Made me think of a man giving birth to an umbrella. Pretty useful.

An attractive upper class lady and her butler sit at a table. Before her, she has multiple presents from her myriad admirers.

The lady motions to the umbrella and inquires of her butler, "And from whom is this, Jeffrey?"

"The umbrella comes from The Man, missus."

The Man was a secret admirer that had been sending her gifts for the past fortnight.

While there are a couple of situations that this would make sense in, I think it would be expressed differently every time.

I don't understand why it's "dall'" and not "dal uomo"?

It's "dall'" because "uomo" starts with a vowel.
