Scopa

Description

A small town in the province of Vercelli, located in the middle of the Valsesia, along the river Sesia, at about 80 kilometers from the regional capital, Scopa is devoted to agriculture and is famous for the cultivation of vines and the production of DOC labeled wines. For its climatic location, the town has recently become an important tourist resort for Summer holidays.
Presence of settlements in the valleys bordering the river Sesia are documented since prehistory. The Romans colonized the area, and at the fall of the Empire, the territories were occupied by the Barbarians and the Lombards. During the medieval period, Walser populations from the Valais found shelter and built their settlements in the Upper Valley. In the early 14th century, according to the traditions, the inhabitants of the valley gathered together here with the intent to expel from the territory, the revolutionary heretic, Fra 'Dolcino.
At the time of the Lords, the lands were ceded from the Duchy of Milan to the Savoy and later fell under the domination of France. Before the Risorgimento, Scopa was annexed to the kingdom of Sardinia. Over the later centuries the town shared the same fate and historical events of the entire Piedmont region, and in a particular way, in the most important episodes of the XX century: between wars, dictatorship and the partisan resistance.
