a bit about Pognana Lario, Como, Lombardy
and
From wikipedia on the Como area:
From then on the history of Como followed that of the Ducato di Milano,
through the French invasion, then the Spanish domination until 1714,
when the territory was taken by the Austrians.
Napoleon descended into Lombardy in 1796 and ruled it until 1815,
when the Austrian rule was resumed after the Congress of Vienna.
Finally in 1859, with the arrival of Giuseppe Garibaldi, the town was
freed from the Austrians and it became part of the newly formed
Kingdom of Italy under the House of Savoy.
