The village of Celledizzo (Celletitium) lies on a slight slope of an alluvial fan; in the meadows in front, you can see the large boulders brought by the avalanche of 1888. The name Celledizzo probably has a Roman origin and derives from the Latin word “cella”. During the Middle Ages, the word “cella” meant "the smallest parcel of land" or the "pantry for food and storage for the harvest" or, starting in the 11th century, the word “cella” meant “little church or chapel". The cottages with wooden roofs and large wooden beams are the specific characteristic of this area. Along the first access road to the village, you can see the old sawmill and the “travai”, a small canopy, once used for taking care of cattle hooves. The church is located in a dominant position with a churchyard and a cemetery bordered by a wall; the chapel of St. Anthony was reduced in height to build a large bell tower embellished by a balustrade and pinnacles. Today, the small church, called "basèrga", only keeps the ancient apse decorated with valuable frescoes probably painted by the brothers Giovanni and Battista Baschenis (1473). The church is dedicated to Saints Fabiano and Sebastian and is attested in 1320, although it has more ancient origins, as it was the model for all the other chapels in the valley. The current building dates back to 1500 and preserves, next to the narrow side entrance, a beautiful aedicule in finely worked stone. The internal single nave has rib vaults; it houses 4 altars, the largest one in polychrome marble. The relative four altarpieces are in gilded and carved wood: three of them were made by Lenner. The Via Crucis was painted by Giuseppe Craffonara. A forest road starts from the church and leads to Borche and Levi alpine dairies and, from there, you can take a path that leads to Val di Rabbi. The village has numerous fountains that once satisfied the needs of the community and were a place where people met and gathered.
