Of fourteenth century, the mill is moved by the waters of the canal of the same name, it is fed by multiple springs located in the territories of Tornaco and Terdobbiate. In order to increase the mass of water of the reservoir, the eyelashes of the banks were raised on the campaign plan.
At the end of the 50s of last century, the mill was last refurbished but there are still within the working mechanisms.
The water coming out of the canal, crossing from north to south across the town, going to irrigate agricultural land in the valley of the country. The changing needs of the population suggested in the early 1900s, the coverage of the urban section of the canal.
Currently, the surrounding area has been enriched with reproductions of ancient works of the artistic movement of Macchiaioli.
