Comologno is the penultimate village of the Onsernone Valley, a V-shaped pre-alpine valley with very little arable land. The inhabitants, in order to survive, were forced to emigrate.
Emigration was seasonal and predominantly male. The women, on the other hand, took care of agriculture and children.
Around 1700 the emigrants brought back wealth and culture to the village and built the noble palaces that still constitute the architectural and cultural structure of the village today. Comologno and the Onsernone Valley have had a varied and interesting history that you can learn more about through various publications, some of which can be viewed on site.
