Enclosed in the forest and streaming through history
Cascina Merlata (literally: “castellated farmhouse”, “farmhouse with battlements”) owes its name to a stream and the forest through which it flowed in ancient times.
The Merlata torrent, “Merlada” in Lombard idiom, gushed from the confluence of the Nirone and Guisa streams and flowed into the Olona, a tributary of the Po river (the longest river in Italy). Until 1800, along the “Merlada”, on the road that connected Como to Milan, the Merlata woods were well known, both because the forest was used as a place for picnics or wedding ceremonies, and because, until the 17th century, the same area was infested by thieves and criminals. The most famous villains of that time were Giacomo Legorino and Battista Scorlino, who in the mid-1500s had gathered in a gang of eighty people: thieves, looters and many murderers of those unfortunate people who happened to pass through the woods. The trial that found them guilty and eventually led to their exemplary execution, as was the custom at the time, was closed by the then Captain of Justice: Pietro Giorgio Visconti in 1566.
