Bosco, whose name is certainly medieval. The village wasadjacent to the abbey of St. Nicholas, with that of St. Peter's Licusati,nullius dioecesis until 1850.

Poor therefore the news on the villageuntil 1828, when it rose to the attention of the United because del Carretto, with the sovereign powers of '' alter ego)), orderedthe bombing shaving it to the ground, having judged «nurseries of thieves », of the rioters of 1828.
