History

Already inhabited in ancient times, the town was under the Holy See’s influence already before the year 1000.

Its lords were of the “de Govono” family, and during the XI century fought many times against the bishop.

During time the town was owned by the Solaro family and, since the late eighteenth century, by the Savoia.
