Cadro is April 14, 2013, a district of the city of Lugano in the district Lugano Nord , in the district of Lugano in the canton of Ticino in Switzerland .
Cadro lies at the foot of the Denti della Vecchia in the Cassarate valley , through which the river of the same name flows.
Cadro was first mentioned as Cadelo in 735 . At the time of the Lombards it was attested in 854 in connection with the property of the Totonids of Campione d'Italia as a vicus , which was then bequeathed to the Milanese monastery of Sant'Ambrogio by the Lombard ruler Toto of Campione in the Middle Ages. The Benedictine Abbey of Sant'Abbondio in Como and the Santa Maria Hospital in Lugano also owned land in Cadro. He covered the 1,591-mentioned place Abessone or Dassone that after a plague to deserted village was. The church of Santa Agata, first mentioned in 1366, was renovated in 1603.
In 1643 there were 272 inhabitants in Cadro, in the 19th and until the end of the 20th century the number of inhabitants remained constant at around 500.
Agriculture was the main activity in the village. In 1911 it was connected to the Lugano-Cadro-Dino-Bahn . Since 1960, Cadro has increasingly become a residential community in the Lugano agglomeration, which has led to strong population growth.
On September 30, 2007, the voters of Cadro rejected a merger with the neighboring city of Lugano by 585 against 542 votes. The municipalities of Barbengo , Carabbia and Villa Luganese, however, agreed to the incorporation.
For the time being, the municipality was able to preserve its municipal freedom because the Federal Court had ruled on the complaint of some voters from Cadro that the canton of Ticino must declare a consultative vote to be binding for the first time and that if the voters reject the merger, it may not impose a forced merger.
Quote from federal court decision:
“ The complainants have the right to have the consultative vote, which is in principle the only way in which they can express their will, respect their voting rights. "
A second referendum in 2012 was in favor of the incorporation, so that the merger with Lugano came into force on April 14, 2013.
