  • PESCALE ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE - Loc. Strette del Pescale

  • Important archaeological station where the recovery of finding, vases, worked bone and the discovery of a prehistoric village that occupies a surface of 2600 square meters, date back their existence to Vth-IVth millennium B.C. The open space of Il Castellaro, the cliff that rises up rapidly on the right side of the Secchia at the "Strette del Pescale", in the place where the river receives the waters of the Pescarolo rivulet, was the center of a prehistoric village. The settlement, that occupied a surface of about 2.600 square metres and was formed by great huts with wood and clay, with an elipsoidal plant and with the floor dug-out in the ground, lasted from the end of the Vth cent. or from the beginning of the IVth millennium B.C. to the first half of the IIIrd cent.. The material found there documents, in fact, the succession in the place of the different cultures developed in western Emilia during the Neolitio. But some findings discovered near the lytic station of the Pescale and dated to the following copper age and bronze age, and other discovered in a neighbouring place, (Castellarano, Roteglia), datable to the bronze age and to the iron age, including brick fragments of Roman age, announce that this median place of the valley of the Secchia was exploited to build for an even span of time longer, from the Stone Age, to the historical times.
