History

History

Campomorone’ political significance grew in the sixteenth century because a new road was built on 5th December 1583 from Passo di Bocchetta through the valley to Polcevera. The mining of green marble "Pietralavazzera" was started towards the end of the century. There is evidence in the Santo Stefano di Larvego parish church which points to the fact that the extraction of the green marble already started during the renaissance. It is a baptismal font made of green marble from one single block out of a piece weighing several hundred kilograms and it was carved in the 11th century.
