Valcamonica is a valley in the Italian
central Alps, almost two hours by car from Milan. Its name took
origin from a pre-Indo-European people named Camunni,
conquered by Rome in 16 BC.
Hundreds of thousands of figures
are present in Valcamonica Rock Art, one of the richest open-air
engraved areas in Europe.
Here you can take a virtual
visit to Valcamonica: you can start by taking a look to some figures
and scenes, then to the most important
sites, soon after trying to understand the different prehistoric
phases and styles. And more many detailed records are available
from the euroPreArt database.
Finally some notes about Naquane,
the astonishing National Park
of engraved rocks at Capo di Ponte, will be useful for your trip,
virtual or may be real….
