History

Anciently founded as a fortified village, this town has a long and complicated history.

First it was a feud of the town of Asti, then it was owned by the Garretti, the Guttuari, the Della Rovere d’Aragona and other families, until it was owned by the Dal Pozzo since 1650.

It was then owned by the Holy See until 1741, when Benedetto XIV gave it to the Savoia family.
