According to legend, St. Martin of Tours lived here as a child; in the 9th century a monastery entitled to the saint existed here. Later it was a fief of the Beccaria family (see Montù Beccaria) and other families. In 1743 it was annexed to the Kingdom of Sardinia (Piedmont), remaining the boundary with the Austrian-controlled Lombardy-Venetia until 1859.
On the Gravellone stream, in 1848, king Charles Albert of Sardinia assigned for the first time to his army the Tricolore, which was to become Italy's flag.
