Nomaglio was the seat of the old lords of Settimo Vittone, who ruled also many surrounding places. Their main branch was the Giampietro of Settimo counts, who ruled over Settimo Vittone, Cesnola, Montestrutto, Quincinetto, Tavagnasco and Nomaglio. The family passed in the eighteenth century into the Mola di Beinasco, originary of Carignano, descendants of James Mola, Lord of Carmagnola (XII century), who later took the name of Mola di Nomaglio.
