Ghemme

Description

The name derives from Agamini, a group of Celts that had settled in the area. It is a town of the province of Novara, situated along the road that connects Novara to Valsesia, at the mouth of the valley on the left bank of the river Sesia, surrounded by vineyards and woods. Divided into four districts, is renowned not only for being the birthplace in 1798 of the famous architect Alessandro Antonelli, but also for its wines, which are the largest source of income, and the production of textiles and honey. It offers pleasant walks through the narrow mountain tracks that wind between the hills.
The area was inhabited since the Neolithic age as evidenced by the remains found in the hills (objects and remains of huts). It was a center of considerable importance during the Roman domination of which traces remain today only of the "pagus" of Novara. The discovery of numerous findings evidence that trading was practiced in addition to the agricultural vocation. During the year 1000, the Marquis Vibert of Ivrea resided here. During the Middle Ages it was the seat of the vicar of the Guelphs of Novara and subsequently a representative of the Marquis of Monferrato settled here. From the XV century, Ghemme was chosen as main residence by several noble families of Milan and Novara. In 1467, an important peace treaty was concluded here, between the Duke Sforza of Milan and Filippo of Savoia. In the period between the XV and the XVIII centuries it was a fief that belonged to the Bergamino Family, the Tettoni, the Homodei, the Modegnani and the Marquis of Ghemme, Benedetto di Savoia.
