Lecco is a city of c. 48,131 inhabitants in Lombardy, northern Italy, 50km north of Milan, the capital of the province of Lecco. It lies at the end of the south-eastern branch of Lake Como . The Bergamo Alps rise to the north and east, cut through by the Valsassina of which Lecco marks the southern end.The lake narrows to form the river Adda, so bridges were built to improve road communications with Como and Milan. There are four bridges crossing the river Adda in Lecco: the Azzone Visconti Bridge, the Kennedy Bridge and the Alessandro Manzoni Bridge and a railroad bridge.Its economy used to be based on industry, but now it is mainly tertiary.Lecco was also Alpine Town of the Year 2013.HistoryArchaeological finds demonstrate the presence of Celtic settlement in the area before the arrival of the Romans. The latter built a castrum here and made it an important road hub. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the Lombards captured the town in the 6th century; they were followed by the Franks, who made Lecco the seat of a countship and, later, of a frontier Mark.
