Lovere

Description

Town of Val Camonica, in the province of Bergamo, located on the Western shore of Lake Iseo, Lovere has ancient origins, which are evidenced by testimonies, such as a house of Celtic times and the Roman necropolis with its treasures, today preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Milan. During the Middle Ages the territory belonged to the monks of Tours, who ceded these lands in favor of the bishop of Bergamo, till the Celeri Family took over these possessions. During the struggles between Guelphs and Ghibellines, the village was surrounded with numerous fortifications, such as high walls and towers, of which today some houses-towers are still visible such as: the Torre Söca (XIII-XIV), the Tower of Alghisi (sec. XII-XIII ) and the Torricella.
Among the sites of interest worth of mention: the Castlelliere, a protohistoric settlement situated on the hill Ronchi, strategically placed to control all the roads. Dated between the V and III centuries B.C. and it was already used by the Gauls.
The Basilica of Santa Maria in Valvendra built in the second half of the XV century. It is currently characterized by a Renaissance-style with Lombard elements and inside it features the famous organ doors painted by Florian Ferramola and Alessandro Binvicino, known as the Moretto, originally preserved in the old cathedral of Brescia; art works by Gian Paolo Cavagna, Domenico Carpinoni and Piero Marone, wood carvings and marble sculptures from the workshop of Fantoni.
The Church of San Giorgio ( late XIV century), built on the ruins of the medieval tower Söca, it contains works of great artistic value, like a painting by the Flemish artist Jean de Herdt, an altarpiece by Gian Paolo Cavagna and another one by Antonio Gandini.
Not to miss: the Monastery of St. Chiara, the Oratory of San Martino, the Shrine of St. John, the Shrine of the Siants by B. Capitanio and V. Gerosa, the Academy of Fine Arts Tadini, full of masterpieces by the greatest Italian and foreign painters and sculptors, Palace Bazzini and Palazzo Tadini.
