Lovere

the village of Lóvere (Lóer in Bergamo dialect and camuno dialect) in Lombardy is located on Lake Iseo. Its history is rich in events, given its strategic position between the alto Sebino and the mouth of the Val Cavallina. The first settlements date back to a period between the V and III century B.C., as witnessed by the presence of a nucleus of celtic origin placed in a strategic position, still called Fort. The subsequent centuries saw the arrival of the roman domination, who built an important communication route, called then street of San Maurizio and the construction of a large town on the shores of the lake. Following the end of the Roman Empire the territory was subject to the barbarian hordes, ended with the settlement of the Lombards. These subentrarono the francs that, by introducing the Holy Roman Empire, gave way to the feudalism and to the medieval age. They were the years in which infuriavano the district struggles between Guelphs and Ghibellines, and also Lovere is found at the center of numerous encounters: in this respect the country is equipped with several fortifications, including towers and defensive walls, in a dominant position with respect to the lake. Still remain in that epoch, the houses and towers, as Torre Soca, the Torre degli Alghisi and the Torricella rotunda of the ancient town walls.

The clashes lasted until the first half of the fifteenth century, when the territory passed to the Republic of Venice, whose domination lasted until 1797. The Serenissima launched numerous laws aimed to raise the social and economic situation and revives the inhabited center and by improving the conditions of life of the inhabitants. In 1815 it passed to the Lombardo-Veneto Kingdom. Already in that period began to develop numerous industrial activities in the context of the iron and steel industry, which brought prosperity and development of the whole area up to the twentieth century, when the village began to focus strongly on the tourist industry in order to enhance its richness in natural and cultural beauty.
