History[edit]

An ancient route connected Milan to Carate Brianza through the city and because the location was nine miles from Milan it was called Nova Milanese (nine is nove in Italian).

At the beginning of the twentieth century the main economic activity was the breeding of silkworms. This continued until the twenties when there was the advent of synthetic fibers.In addition to the soil grains, it produced excellent grapes, in fact Nova Milanese appears along with twenty other countries as the best producer of wine in the ranking by the Milanese poet Carlo Porta in 1815.
