In the past the village of Pantasina was part of Castellania Pietralata Superiore, and then it changed hands and came under the feudal rule of Signori di Ventimiglia before finally being taken over by the Lascaris family. It later belonged to the Savoy Royal Family, and then it became part of the kingdom of Sardinia before being integrated into the Italian Kingdom. It was an independent municipality until 1928, when it was then assigned to the municipality of Vasia.
