Campo Ligure is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Genoa in the Italian region Liguria, located about 37km northwest of Genoa.Campo Ligure borders the following municipalities: Bosio, Masone, Rossiglione, Tiglieto.GeographyIt is located in the center of the intersection of the rivers Stura, Angassino and Ponzema, 25km from Genoa, and part of its territory to the west is within the boundaries of the Parco naturale regionale del Beigua, while in the east borders the Parco delle Capanne di Marcarolo.HistoryThe place name refers to a 3rd-century A.D. Roman fortified settlement under the leadership of Emperor Aurelian., reinforced by the Byzantines in the 6th century. The first parish, San Michele, is probably dating back to the 10th century. Between the 12th and 13th century various families take turns leading the administration of Campo, until the year 1329, when Campo becomes a small fief of the Holy Roman Empire, surrounded by the territory of the Republic of Genoa.In July 1600 the Republic of Genoa increases control of the small enclave, so that local rebels to its dominion are forced to surrender and be banished. The 18th century is full of events in Campo’s life: suffering floods, involved in political struggles between Vienna and the Republic of Genoa, the town sees a gradual buildup of manufacturing activities (iron production and processing, silk spinning mills, paper mills, lime pits, forestry and agriculture) and eventually the birth of the republican municipality that joins the Ligurian Republic in 1797.
