At 1,118 metres above sea level, it is the highest municipality in Liguria, extending along the left bank of the Cassingheno stream. Like other towns in the Upper Trebbia Valley, its origins can be traced back to the flight of populations from the coast in medieval times. Its toponym derives from 'fascia', the name of a strip of land cultivated and supported by dry stone walls, typical of the Ligurian rural landscape. Immersed in a typical mountain environment, Fascia offers numerous summer holidaymakers walks and views of its plateaus on the slopes of Mount Antola. A controversial tradition has it that Fascia is the home of ravioli, while a typical speciality is apple pie (pai) imported from North America, the destination of emigration of many of the town's inhabitants in the second half of the 19th century. The parish church of the Assunta, dominated by a slender Baroque bell tower, built in the mid-17th century, is worth a visit. The aforementioned hamlet is also part of the Antola Regional Natural Park: one of the most enchanting areas of the Apennines and the Ligurian hinterland, thanks to the extraordinary panorama of the 1600 m Mount Antola and the activities of the nearby Brugneto Lake.
