Description

Town in the province of Milan, Bareggio is located West of Milan in the natural reserve "Fontanile Nuovo", forty acres of protected area that offer a typical example of the lowlands of the Po territories.
The area was inhabited in pre-Roman times by the Insubres Gauls that prevailed on the Etruscans between the VI and V centuries B.C., they settled in the area between the Ticino and the Adda, which since then was inhabited by sparse settlements of Ligurian people. The town's name derives from "Barasia," a term that in the Middle Ages meant wildlands. After the fall of the Roman Empire, it suffered the Lombard domination, first, and the French one , then. For a long period the town was under the jurisdiction of the abbot of the Basilica of Saint Ambrose of Milan. It is mentioned for the first time in a document of 780, relative to an exchange of funds.
