Summary (English)

  • In 2021, the Catholic university of Milan, in collaboration with the Cavellas Museum and local administration of Casazza, reopened excavations on the site of the Roman village of Casazza (BG), discovered in 1992, partially investigated and opened to the public from 2015 onwards. The vicus is situated in the middle of the Valle Cavallina, crossed by a road linking Bergomum with the Alpine passes to the north. The site, covering over 1000 m2, was partially investigated with sondages, which revealed a vast rural settlement, constituted by structures built of calcareous stone and cobblestones. The material culture attests occupation from the 1st to 5th century A.D., the various phases interspersed with fires and flooding from nearby torrents, which led to the abandonment of the village.
