CAORSO

Description

Location for neolithic settlers, the village stretches along the ancient road that linked Genoa to Piacenza and Cremona to reach Aquileia, marking the limits of the Roman conquered lands to the north. Ottone Mandelli's family was given Caorso castle by the Visconti family. They owned it until the 19th century, when they donated it to Piacenza Charitable Institutions. The no longer working nuclear plant 'Arturo' is at short distance. The local economy is based upon agriculture, industry and energy research.
