Longone al Segrino

Longone al Segrino is a northern Italian municipality ( comune ) with 1802 inhabitants ( 31 December 2012) in the Province of Como in Lombardy. The village is located approximately 12.5 km east-northeast of Como on the west shore of Lago di Segrino.


When in 222 the proconsul Metellus Caio moved along here, nothing is known of a settlement, but the Celts settled many years before the Romans in this area. The area was devastated during the time again and again by foreign troops.
