Meda

3.9
Meda is a city and comune with 23.001 inhabitants of the province of Monza and Brianza, located in the northern Italian region of Lombardy, close to Milan and Como. It is well known as furniture centre.Meda is served by Meda railway station.HistoryMeda's history is linked to the history of its convent and of its foundation. From the latter's location on a mound (meta) stems the town's name.According to legend, the Saints Aimo and Vermund, counts of Turbigo, were attacked by two wild boars while hunting. To save their lives, they swore to God that, if saved, they would build a convent right there. The convent was built around 780 near an old little church dedicated to St. Vittore. In order to be free from the control of the new priorate, the people of Meda built another church dedicated to St. Mary and St. Sebastian. The quarrels between the inhabitants and the convent ended on 10 December 1252, when the Prioress Maria da Besozzo gave up all her political, administrative and economic power on the village.Later the municipal territory was held by the Visconti and Sforza families until, in the 16th century, it fell under the control of Spain and then of Napoleon. Meda later came under the power of the House of Habsburg and then, after the Second War of Italian Independence, became part of the Kingdom of Italy.
