Borgnòne is a district in the political municipality Centovalli in the Melezza district , in the Locarno district of the canton of Ticino in Switzerland . Borgnone is on the border with Piedmont , Italy .
The municipality included the three fractions of Càmedo - the settlement focus of Borgnòne on the railway line and through road down in the valley - as well as Costa and Liònza above . The neighboring communities were Onsernone , Intragna , Mosogno and Palagnedra in Switzerland and Re in Italy. Borgnòne has been served by the Centovalli Railway since 1923 , which begins at Locarno station and leads to Italy through the Valle Vigezzo as the Italian continuation of the Centovalli to Domodossola .
The village was first mentioned in 1364 as Brugnono . In the Middle Ages the village was part of the Locarno landscape . A Degagna in the 15th century, the settlement shared the fate of the Bailiwick of Locarno between the 16th century and 1798. After the old municipality of Centovalli was divided up in 1838, Borgnone became an independent municipality with Lionza, Costa and Camedo. On October 25, 2009, Borgnone merged with the municipalities of Intragna and Palagnedra to again form the municipality of Centovalli .
The village image is classified in the inventory of protected sites in Switzerland (ISOS) as a site of national importance in Switzerland.
