Sassello is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Savona in the Italian region Liguria, located about 58km west of Genoa and about 26km north of Savona in the northern side of the Ligurian Apennines. It is the birthplace of Blessed Chiara Badano.HistoryIn Pre-historic times it was a settlement of the Statielli, a tribe of the Liguri. It is mentioned for the first time in 967 AD and later it belonged to Bonifacio del Vasto, the del Carretto, Ponzone and Genoese Doria families. Due to its strategical position, it was long contended between the Republic of Genoa and the Marquisate of Montferrat.
