Corsico

Description

Town in the province of Milan, part of the metropolitan area of Milan, Corsico is located along the Naviglio Grande and is an important industrial center in the tertiary sector of the region. There is no agreement of opinion on the origin of the town's name; according to some historians it is the result from "correre" ("running") of the water which is rich territory, according to others, instead, from "corsare" ("corsairs"), since in the past found refuge in these areas many bandits and finally - and this is probably the best hypothesis - that it derives from the name of a person "Cortius.
The village was founded in the early XIII century and immediately followed the fortunes of the nearby historical Duchy of Milan. The early years of the XX century saw the gradual transformation of the country as a center dedicated to agriculture into an industrial center. Nevertheless, they are still clearly visible remains of the rural past of the village, such as the farms of the Guardia, built on the banks of the Naviglio, with large courtyards, as required by the architectural tradition of the Po Valley farms.
In the heart of Corsica is still preserved in an ancient palace inhabited in the XV century by the Piccinino, a captain of the Visconti Family.
Among the religious buildings, worth of mention: the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, the Church of St. Anthony of Padua, the Church of the Holy Spirit, the Church of Sant'Adele and one dedicated to St. Giustino Martyr.
