It is part of the region of Lombardy, one of 20 regions that comprise the country of Italy, and is situated on the north border. Lombardy is one of the richest regions in Europe.

Archaeological findings indicate Lombardy was probably settled since the second millennium BC. Later it became the home of Itruscans, Celtic-Gallic tribes, and then became a Roman province. As a result of the Roman influence, roads, agriculture, and language were developed to a high degree. The region gained its name after the invasion of the Lombards. It became a part of the Kingdom of Italy around 774 AD.
