Erba was the site of the slaughter of four people including a 2 year old baby in December 2006. A married couple (the victims' neighbours) have been arrested for the murders, the district attorney of Como believes that the reason for the killings is related to an ongoing feud between the families. It received the honorary title of city with a presidential decree on May 12, 1970.
