History

The etymology of Mussolente is unclear, a likely theory is that it derived from "Misquilen", a toponym appearing on the sarcophagus of Gaius Vettonius of the Fabian tribe, found in the hamlet of St. Eulalia. There are traces of a settlement since the 1st century AD. Between the 11th and the 13th century it was linked to the events of the Ezzelini. During the First World War the Casoni airfield was an important operational base.
