The picturesque farmhouse La Costa formerly belonged to the wealthy family Allocchio, resident in neighboring villa on the other side of the provincial and whose vast farms stretched round about reaching one hand the banks of the Serio including the rustic buildings of the French, while on the other hand came up to the current hospital entering the territory of Ripalta Cremasca.
Although the farmhouse is certainly an ancient foundation, there is no evidence corroborating the inscription on the wall that dates it to 1400. The building, while preserving the old structures of the base and the original agricultural function, was affected by various interventions and transformations over the centuries and the current computing architecture of neo-gothic style dates from the early nineteenth century, when Dr. Luigi Allocchio was the owner .
Stefano Allocchio received it by inheritance (1918-75), and the farm was sold in 1967 to Paveri’s family, who separated farm and villa.
