The Mother Church

The feud was founded in the XIV century. It belonged to the noble Tagliavia family, and in 1476 it was bestowed to Lord Gerlando Del Porto, who initiated the suburb's peopling with "licentia populandi".

Subsequently, and until the abolition of feudality, the town was under the dominion of the Princes Lanza of Trabia.

The most outstanding monuments are the XVIII century Chiesa Madre, and the Palazzo Municipale (Town Hall building) built during the XIX century.

A famous citizen from Sommatino was Filippo Terranova (1820-1878), who explored and studied the course of the Nile river, during the XIX century.
