History

History

This area was a fiefdom of the Count of Ventimiglia and the bishop of Grasse, and the village of Olivetta was until 1862 the main centre in the Pema valley (this name referred to the position of the village on a rock cliff which was later renamed Piena). The traffic on the Salt Street could be monitored from the castle. The various villages (among them also Piene and Libri) still belonged to France until 1947.
