Casalfiumanese is the first village travelling up the Santerno valley.
To access the center of the city, you must cross an arch at whose side is the Civic Tower, both had to be reconstructed after being seriously damage during the last war, like most of the country. However, it has not lost its original medieval structure.
The name Casalfiumanese derives from the combination of “Casale” (castle) and “fiumanese” (related to stream), due its proximity to the Rio Salso.
The origins of this municipality, rather modest in terms of population but very large in area, date back to the 11th century.
The ancient name of the village, which largely traces the current one, was Castram Casalis Flumanensis.
