I usually use Sherlock translations... but it is not working...

So really forgive me here... I used another free translation service...

Here is that web page I linked to you ... in English...

CASORZO
Country of the Monferrato situated to 293 meters of height on the sea level, in province of Asti, is developed on a surface of 1260 hectares and has one population of approximately 670 inhabitants.
Inhabited L. concentrates on one small height to the right of the river Rotaldo, that it meets in the Po to Bozzole.

In 1708, Casorzo, with to the ducato one of the Monferrato, pass?i Savoia, in the person of Amedeo II, as a result of the dead women of Ferdinand Carl Gonzaga, last duca of Monferrato. On Casorzo, from 1290 to 1394, also the dominion of Asti had extended, when the local getlteman, the "de Casurtio", had been hunted from the inhabitants that submitted themselves then to the Common one of Asti, that it was in fight with the Marchesato monferrino.

One be a matter of women, old and children who had tried escape in that sacred place, while the valid men had hidden in the campaign. With such brutal gesture, the commander of the Spanish troops, the Portuguese Gregorio Britti, meant to punish the Casorzesi guilty to have given asylum to the Grazzanesi, which were rebel to you to the Spanish soldiers who had tried to extort they ulterior excise taxes. In the registry of the parish priest (than then it was don Heel) are annotated generalit?i the all meticulously the victims, continuations from a precise report of the vicissitude.
