The Como-Brunate funicular is opened in 1894, symbolizing the development of public transport during that period, when every center of the province was connected to the provincial capital by a series of public transport lines.

It was the period of industrial development and the beginning of what would later become "mass tourism".

In 1911 the traction system is switched from steam to electricity.
In 1912, the "cannon" is installed, which fires a salute every day at 12 o'clock.

In the years 1934/35 it was completely renovated, including the complete renovation of the Brunate station. In 1951, equipment was changed again.

At the end of the 1960s, private car transport puts public transport in a difficult position, as gradually becomes apparent in the second half of the XX century.
