The House was built in 1875 near the old Convent of Santa Maria dei Martiri. In 1400 a small village started to grow around the convent and became famous for a market where local products were sold every Saturday. Being Saturday the market –day, the village was named ‘Forum Sabati’ – Mercato del Sabato (Saturday Market) - later simply renamed ‘Mercato’
