The submerged pile-dwelling village known as ‘del Belvedere’ stands in the lake about 250 metres from the shore. The site covers more than 22,000 square metres and lies just off the southern shore of Lake Garda. The sampling of the extensive piling involved about 1,200 vertical posts protruding from the lakebed. The material collected and the data produced by the survey have so far enabled the identification of at least two different phases of occupation and development of the site: the first dates from the 21st to the 20th century BC, i.e. the Early Bronze Age; the second to the end of the 17thcentury BC, or the transition between Early Bronze Age and Middle Bronze Age.
