Controneria is the largest and most populous area of ​​the Municipality of Bagni di Lucca and has various centres: Pieve di Controne, San Gimignano and San Cassiano, as well as Guzzano, Gombereto, Mobbiano, Longoio and Vetteglia.

The nucleus of San Cassino is itself a set of small inhabited hamlets that also includes the localities such as Campiglia, Cappella, Vizzata, Cembroni, Cocolaio, Livizzano, Chiesa and Piazza.

The origin of the name "Controne" is uncertain. It may come from the way the inhabitants of the left bank of the Lima called this area, “di contro” (opposite to themselves).
