Bordered on the north by the Postumia (a Roman consular road, linking Genoa and Aquileia) and to the south by the ancient riverbed of the Po, Sospiro still preserves traces of Roman land division (into “centuries”). An imperial possession since the ninth century, Sospiro grew in later centuries under the power of the Bishop of Cremona. The Middle Ages have left numerous important buildings: the bell tower of 1261, the church of San Siro, the church of San Sisto in San Salvatore and the church of Saint John. Villa Cattaneo, a neoclassical patrician villa, dates from the late seventeenth century, and is now the headquarters of the Sospiro Foundation.
