Rozzano received the honorary title of city with a presidential decree on July 21, 2003.
The first government to officialise the birth of the municipality of Rozzano was that of Napoleon who in 1809 decreed the annexation of Torriggio and in 1811 those of Cassino Scanasio, Pontesesto and Quinto de' Stampi. The Austrians first annulled everything in 1816, but then reconsidered regarding Torriggio and Cassino Scanasio in 1841, while it was Vittorio Emanuele II in 1870 who sanctioned the final union with Pontesesto, which also brought Quinto as a dowry.

- Cascina Grande. The Cascina Grande in Rozzano houses two libraries: one for children (books, toy library and computer stations) up to 14 years of age, and one for adults. Historically, the Cascina Grande was a farm built in 1881 and some details of the period are still visible today, such as the mill where the library for children is now located, the part that is now reserved to adults was the stables and the part dedicated to conferences, a bar and exhibitions were the stables.
