Ruins Of The Family Tasso’s House

Borgo Storico
Camerata Cornello


In the southern part of Cornello you find the ruins of the Tasso Family’s oldest house. The family owned other properties which still stand today such as the building on which you can find the family’s crest, painted as a fresco on the main façade in the hamlet’s square. Between 1986 and 1989 the Province of Bergamo carried out archaeological reclamations on the site, during which numerous fragments of pottery dating back to 1400s and the preceding centuries were uncovered. The ruins are part of a cultural axis which includes the Mercatorum and Priula – migrant routes, artists, the Tasso family and the Harlequin.
