Fiastra's Lake

San Lorenzo al Lago is a town located on the shores of Lake Fiastra and originated after the reservoir was completely filled. Its name comes from San Lorenzo a small country that was on the bottom of the valley called San Lorenzo to River and along with other small residential areas, was always covered by water.

During periods when the water level is lowered, you can still see some elements of the old country's re-emergence on the surface, this happens in winter and spring periods when levels are not maintained in full and constant rate as in summer.

The area around the lake was already known from the point of view of the archaeological well before the construction of the dam. Many discoveries were made in the vicinity of San Lorenzo to River: graves with sacred kits, fragments of ceramic pots attributed to the Neolithic, blades, scrapers and scrapers who served Paleolithic humans to hunt and to scrape the hides. Today these treasures and relics of the past have been returned to the community of Marche and kept at the National Archaeological Museum of the Marches.
