It was once covered by a thin layer of humus, unsuitable for the growing of woods, so it was mostly heathland.HistoryThe most ancient proofs a settlement in Legnano dates to pre-historic times, to the so-called Remedello culture (21st - 19th centuries BC). Later it was a Celtic center, conquered by the Romans in the 1st century BC.In the Middle Ages, Legnano was the location of the battle in which Emperor Frederick I was defeated by the Lombard League (1176).From 1820 to 1915, with the introduction of numerous textile and mechanical companies, the town grew from an agricultural to an industrial center. Most of the textile industries closed in the 1960s: today the services sector is the most thriving one.
