Tips

  • Pietro Valdinoci

    The lake is an important archaeological site which over the years has returned hundreds of Etruscan testimonies.
    Many statuettes of idols, ex-votos and weapons have been found in its waters and nearby. It is thought that in ancient times this was a sort of natural sanctuary: the Etruscans venerated the waters of this lake, perhaps attributing to it thaumaturgical powers.

    Once called Lago della Ciliegina, it was renamed after the successful discovery of a huge number of Etruscan finds, including statues of idols and divinities, coins, weapons and so on, now kept in the Casentino Archaeological Museum.
