The area takes its name from the existence of storages and workshops of the Calcineri, that is, the sellers and producers of lime.
The congregation of the Calcineri met in the nearby church of San Vio. In the sixteen hundred the Calcineri were involved in a dispute with the parish priest as they considered them to be the solely in right to hold the body of the Blessed Countess Tagliapietra buried in the church. Eventually they got to a Solomonic conclusion of the case: one key of the coffing to be held by an estate steward of the school and the other by the parish priest.
On the wall of the building standing there you can see two coats of arms, the first with a gothic shield supported by an angel and the second with a crupmpled shield.
