The district was born in the 1960s, thanks to the founder Mario Veronesi, a pharmacist who understood the potential of the disposable product market in the medical field. His intuition led to the birth and, subsequently, the expansion of new biomedical companies, until reaching the international market in the 2000s. Even today, despite the lack of transport infrastructures, the district is growing strongly thanks to the birth of new realities that support the characterized values and ideals of the territory.
