Description

Town in the province of Piacenza, located in the confluence of the Valleys Tidone, Luretta and Trebbia, along the first slopes of the Apennines, Agazzano has Roman origins, revealed by its name "Agathianum" (a Latin adjective which derives from "Agathius", the name of an old noble family, that owned an important farm in the area). One of the possessions of the "Pagus Lurate", quoted in "Tabula alimentaria" of Traiano in the II century A.D. The foundation of the settlement by the Romans is also attested by the discovery of objects and tombs of Imperial origins in the village of Sarturano.

It was ceded to the feudal Scotti Family, who kept hold of the domain till the XVIII century, except for a short period when it belonged to the Arcelli Family.
