Lallio

Description

Lallio is a small town in the province of Bergamo, set not too far from the provincial capital. According to tradition, the place name derives from the Latin word "alea" (dice): in fact this area became a place of entertainment where the Roman soldiers used to spend the winter. It is mentioned for the first time in a testament of 875.
Its strategic position made it really desired by the noble families of Bergamo, including the Suardis; the situation returned to normal when the area passed under the control of the Republic of Venice.
The Church of San Bernardino is no doubt the most important mpnument of the town. Declared National Monument, it was built during the XV century and is appreciated especially for the frescoes inside. Part of these, carried out between the XVI and the XVII century portraying the lives of Our Lady, San Bernardino, Santa Caterina d'Alessandria and, in the presbytery, the passion and death of Christ, are works of Evaristo Baschenis.
