As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 8,991 and an area of 25.9km2.HistoryThe name of Laveno comes from two denominations: the first is from the Latin word "labes", that means "landslide"; the second denominations is from the Roman general "Tito Labienus", that give his name to the port and subsequently to the surrounding area. The radix of the name are actually just in the main road of the town, via Labiena. Titus Labienus is considered responsible for naming Mombello too, after a battle against the Gauls . A different interpretation says that the meaning is "monte bello", that is "beautiful hill".In the 19th century, Laveno Mombello was home to important ceramic industries. Today, it is a port town that connects the province of Varese with Verbania and the famous Borromean Islands across Lake Maggiore.The municipality was formed in 1927 to encompass the previously separate centres of Laveno, Mombello and Cerro.Laveno-Mombello borders the following municipalities: Caravate, Castelveccana, Cittiglio, Ghiffa, Leggiuno, Sangiano.
