The history of our street names

Many of the street names in our town have a history and we are happy to share them with you. In the document you’ll find the list of vehicular routes, their origins and their significance. As you read it, you will travel the past and learn of some of the events and people who left their mark on different periods of our town’s history. We hope that you will have as much pleasure in reading it as we have had in developing it. 

You may notice, however, that some definitions and explanations of street names are missing. If by any chance you have information about them to share, you can do so by emailing us at: and we shall take great pleasure in adding the information to our database.
