Ponna is a town of 254 inhabitants located at an altitude of 870 meters above sea level. It was born from the union of Lower Ponna and Ponna Superiore, which occurred in 1756. The foundation of this village is very old, as evidenced by the presence of some erratic “cupelliformi” boulders found in the area. Some scholars attribute the origin of the name to the greek word Ponna (Peony or Peona), some instead think of Epona, ancient deity of war, and others to the Etruscan word Leponzio. Some findings, now preserved in the Archaeological Museum in Como, show that the territory was already inhabited in Roman times. The joint then passed into the hands of different families, such as the Visconti, the Rusca, the Marliani and the Riva Andreotti.
