Inverigo hill is in the heart of Brianza, not far from Lake Como and Milan.  

This town has a rich history of famous characters and also a large number of historical residences, once owned by rich families from Milan who would escape to Inverigo in the summer, seeking peace and quiet in the cool countryside. 

Villa Romanò, Romanò Brianza, and Cremnago are just some of the hamlets that make up Inverigo, and each one developed around the homes of the noble families who lived in them. For a long time, the heart of the town itself was a tiny village, ignored by historic happenings. 

This municipality is said have originated a long time ago, even if very little is known about it from medieval times, but in later centuries the name of Inverigo started to appear on censuses, agreements and contracts. We know that in the fifteenth century, like many other places in these parts, it belonged to the Mariano fief, the main village of this parish until 1476, later becoming the property of the Viscontis, and afterwards of the Sforza family, and that, while at the end of the sixteenth century it had had just 358 inhabitants, 250 years later this number had already risen to 894. 

A very definite mark was left here by the noble and highly illustrious Crivelli family, feudatories and owners of Inverigo Castle from 1580, the year when all the assets of the Giussanis of Inverigo, including the castle, became the property of the Crivelli family when Tiberio Giussani nominated his nephew Flaminio Crivelli as his heir.

Thanks to the Crivellis, who decided to settle in Inverigo, their biggest fief, and who in a few decades gained possession of nearly all of Brianza and Lomellina, this village, turned from an anonymous country hamlet into a strategic hub, a real “capital of the Brianza” as historians from that period wrote.  
In the centuries to come, an important change was brought about by the technological and social development that led to construction of the Milan-Erba railway in 1879, today the Milano/Canzo-Asso stretch, which promoted the town as a tourist destination. 
Described as the “pearl of Brianza” when it was a holiday destination for the nobility, Inverigo is definitely worth exploring.  
A town still surrounded by splendid countryside, with its old tree-lined avenues (part of the municipal area belongs to the Valle del Lambro Regional Park) and an amazing concentration of historic villas and twentieth-century residences that make this town unique
