The hot sulphur springs have been famous since this was the Roman town of Aquae Statiellae; the ancient baths are referred to by Paulus Diaconus and the chronicler Liutprand of Cremona. In 1870 Giovanni Ceruti designed a little pavillion, known as La Bollente (pictured), for the spot at the centre of the town where the waters bubble up at 75C. In the Roman period the place was connected by road with Alba Pompeia and Augusta Taurinorum (Turin). The local tribe of the Statielli had joined the Romans at an early period, but were attacked in 173 BCE and some were transferred to the north of the Po. In the neighbourhood of the town are remains of the aqueduct which supplied it.
