This place was occupied by the ancient Romans as it lay along the road that connected the municipium of Veleia to the Via Emilia. In the Middle Ages a fortress was constructed here to protect the road and the district but in 1250 it was destroyed by soldiers from Cremona. It was rebuilt by the Del Cario, who were lords of this area until 1441, when Filippo Maria Visconti granted the fief to Alberto Scotti of Carpante as a reward for the loyalty he had shown. Today the only structures of note in the village are the Church of San Biagio and the War Memorial. A few traces of the castle can be seen in a farm building.
