The History
The name is derived from the Latin Cuncolus ad Padum, Cuniolus and from the Lombard Chignoeu. It is related to the town’s formation, meandering on a strip of land rising between two rivers: the Lambro and the Po. Back in 1400, they lapped against the sides of the majestic castle of the Federici family, the so-called Todeschini, later owned by Ottaviano Pallavicini of Busseto (before 1484), then by Senator Gerolamo Cusani and subsequently by Cusani Visconti, the Marquis of Chignolo. Archaeological finds provide evidence that the area was inhabited in the Stone Age, certainly in the pre-Roman period, when a fortified settlement, built along the Via Romea, renamed Via Regina in the Middle Ages, served as one of the passages and stops on the Via Francigena pilgrimage route. Places of interest: • The Cusani Visconti Castle • History Museum of Lombard Agriculture • Wine Museum of Lombardy
