It was during the Roman era that appeared the first production plants, as furnaces for bricks and ceramics, and rural settlements in the foothills of Fiorano, Spezzano and Nirano.
In the Museum of Ceramics in Fiorano (Part of Spezzano Castle) It houses a tomb of the Lombard era woman (sixth century).
In 916 D.C.. at the Fiorano hill was built the Castle said 'Sasso' with central tower and an inhabited inside. The Castle passed by the Pio Dalla Rosa Sassuolo, but his story ended in 1558 when it was burned by the Spaniards. Miraculously survived only one Madonna painted on the door of the castle, and from that episode began the worship path that will lead to the construction of the sanctuary designed by Avanzini on behalf of Francesco I d'Este.
