CALENDASCO

Description
We have historical evidence of these places with reference to Dieta di Roncaglia, by means of which the emperor Frederyck Redbeard proclaimed his authority upon Italian Councils in 1158. It was an important transit place for the pilgrims along Via Francigena (not very distant, in Sopravivo, a stele in Romanesque material signals the ford on the river Po). With its castle, Calendasco belonged to several powerful families, among whom Pallastrelli, Scotti, Visconti, Arcelli and Confalonieri. Presently, the economy is based upon agriculture and industry.
