Pigna is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Imperia in the Italian region Liguria, located about 110km southwest of Genoa and about 30km west of Imperia, on the border with France. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 933 and an area of 53.7km2.The municipality of Pigna contains the frazione (subdivision) Buggio.Pigna borders the following municipalities: Apricale, Castelvittorio, Isolabona, Rocchetta Nervina, Saorge (France), and Triora.HistoryIn the southernmost district of North West Italy, where the mountains meet the sea, in a region called Liguria, can be found the valley Nervia. The valley moves up from the sea roughly north. and as it rises, you go on a journey through history, taking in the many villages dotted along the river as it runs down to the shore, one of the most important of which, not least for its historical past and a wealth of artistic treasures, is Pigna, named for the coniferous forests that once surrounded the village in abundance.The ancient village clings to the slopes of the valley mimicking the shape of the pine cones that give it its name. Situated beneath the Little Dolomites, it is near Monte Torraggio, which rises to 1973m above sea level.
