History & Geography
Magda Pedrini Estate includes what was once known as Ca ‘da Meo: a set of vineyards, fields and farms that were originally part of the large landed estates reserved to noble Genoese families, such as the Lomellini, the Spinola, the Doria and the Pinelli. Among these estates, the Piacentina which probably has such remote origins than the one that allows us to glimpse the building that still represents it nowadays. Various farms were part of this ancient estate, among them the Ca ’da Meo, which is fully considered in the ancient borders of the Municipality of Gavi. The rural building of the Ca ’da Meo has presumably hosted some of the members of the Piasentini family, for which it can be said that it is coeval with that of Piacentina itself, the ” mother house “of this farm group. The origin of the toponym Ca ’da Meo is rather difficult to decipher. A little mystery that perhaps doesn’t need to be revealed!
