Findings related to the community, once known as Nocetum, include tombs of an infant and an adult, and coins dating from the time of Roman emperor Magnentius, usurper of the empire from AD 350 to AD 353.
The church was undergoing restoration due to damage caused by humidity, and was declared to be of historical interest by the Superintendence for Cultural Heritage for Lombardy.
