San Gallo is the name of a little church in Vergiate by the road to Cimbro, originally the chapel of a farm owned by the monastery of St. Gallen. It is built upon the foundations of a Roman building, and numerous Roman-age finds including a thermal building were made in the vicinity. See Lattes & Nicodemi 1913, Piana Agostinetti 2004‎: 205–208 and De Marinis 2009e: 684 f. for details about the find place, and Banchieri 2003: fig. 160, Piana Agostinetti 2004‎: 207, fig. 10.70 and De Marinis 2009e: 684, fig. 1 for a map of the precise find spot made by Mario Bertolone, who surveyed the area in 1930.
