In 1944 the San Giorgio Hotel in Lenno and many villas in Tremezzina were requisitioned by the fascist hierarchs who came from Salò: they were ministers and undersecretaries of the Italian Social Republic. Amongst them was Guido Buffarini Guidi, Minister of the Interior, protected by a small garrison, who would spend the evening in a tavern in Lenno. On the night of 3 October 1944, the Liberation Committees attacked the inn to induce the fascists to leave the area. Despite the heavy losses, the action reached its goal.
