Pigra is a village of 258 inhabitants located at an altitude of 881 meters above sea level. The village fought alongside Como during the ten-year war against Milan; during the period of the “Comuni” (municipalities), a lookout tower was  built, whose remains were later demolished for the construction of a new villa. Gian Giacomo de’ Medici, commissioned by Francesco Sforza II, tried to expel the French who had taken over the area, and in 1527 he finally succeeded in the enterprise. It was also made fief of various families, including that of the Rusconi, the Marliani and the Riva Andreotti. The town also took part in the insurrection against the Austrians that ended with the shooting of Andrea Brenta and the exile of Don Cavalli, Pigra pastor.
