1700 - The beginning

In the first part of XVIII Century a sheep-farming family left Maggia Valley (which takes its name from river Maggia) in Switzerland to settle in Pettinengo, Piedmont. Since in Piedmont they were used to call families with the name of their birth places, these Swiss people were called Maggia.
