The precise origins of Rodano are unknown: the only information we have dates from the Medieval era, when pilgrimages started to Rome, since it is very close to San Gimignano and Monteriggioni, located along Via Francigena. There was a Benedictine settlement in Rodano, a place to welcome pilgrims as they rested, and their animals which they brought with them in transhumance, crossing the hillsides in search of pasture.
Our knowledge is based on stories told by those who lived here over time, passed down from generation to generation. Rodano was Lilliano's farmstead owned by the Pozzesi family since the early Twentieth Century. This is when the man responsible for Rodano's transformation into a farm was born, Carlo Pozzesi.
