    Sassomolare is part of the municipality of Castel D'Aiano (8km).
    Sassomolare is a small and characteristic village located on three hills from which there is a beautiful view of the surrounding landscape.
    The place name is thought to originate from a quarry where 'mole' (millstones) were dug.
    In the Middle Age it was part of the dominions of the lords of the Frignano, until its castle was conquered by Bologna.
    The historical place name 'fontana longobardum' indicates that Labante and Castel D'Aiano were ruled by the Longobards.
    The sanctuary of 'Madonna di Brasa' lies nearby Sassomolare; it was built in the XVII century and it was a very popular sanctuary among the near territories of Bologna and Modena.
    The parish church is dedicated to San Giacomo Maggiore and is worthy a visit.
