The sites of Campetto and Cima Marana, frequented by people since prehistoric to modern times, are a good example of mountain settlements and a starting point for educational and methodological considerations on the archaeology of mountains.
In the nineteenth century, there were reports of discoveries of miscellaneous coins, fragments of urns, glass materials, and arrowheads of different periods and artefacts of the Longobard era. In the years to follow more detailed studies were conducted on discovered objects, supported by new findings, and by the identification of traces of dry masonry works, which revealed a longer period of attendance of those sites.
