In the early 14th century it was granted as fiefdom to Carlo and Federico Loranzè by the Bishop of Ivrea, and in the following decades was plagued by the disputes between Guelphs and Ghibellines, who finally accepted a truce under the supervision of Amedeo VI Savoy (the Green Count). On 25 June 1430 Giacomo de Pomariis, bishop of Ivrea, gave to prince Ludovico Savoy Acaya the lands of Vische, in exchange for Parella, Strambinello and Baio.
On 15 June 1515 Florimondo purchased Strambinello, and left it in his will on 23 December 1520 to his eldest son Giovan Cristoforo, officially acknowledged as feudal lord by the Savoy Duke; on his death, the fief passed to his maternal uncle Carlo Antonio Dal Pozzo in 1574. In 1680 Giovanni Domenico Bersano became lord of Strambinello and Quagliuzzo. From the mid-18th century the area was directly under the Savoy.
