It is a walled city and notable is the Church of S.Cristoforo. Knitted goods and shawls are made. The surname is early described as being of conspicuous personage amongst the nobility of the city where they were magistrates and aldermen. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time was in itself a family honor.
