In 1988 a local academic, Alfio Martinelli, curious about the name “castle” attributed since time began to the hill to the north of Tremona, began his own research into the site, abandoned long before and completely overgrown with woods. Martinelli immediately identified numerous mounds of stones which, though half hidden by vegetation, were to be found in abundance. Their distribution did not seem to be random. In fact, quite the opposite. Initial surveys confirmed the hypothesis that the hill was hiding a real treasure, uncovering shards of pottery, flint tools and metal objects including bronze fibulae, arrowheads and fragments of iron that could be dated to between the Neolithic period and medieval times. From the summit of the hill in Tremona, after centuries of silence, history re-emerged.
