Rodai's name origin

The origin of the name is not clear. It could come from the Ticino native word „ròda“ which means round or rotation which was often used for the outtake of community works and animal holding.

 

Another theory, the family of Romerio Giudici had a naturally developed cave in the mountain just behind, where they stored explosive substances, the responsible for the explosions where the family members of Lorenzo Guzzi 1847-1927, so the name of the cave could have been Rodai.
