Italy’s first World Heritage Sight was recognised in 1979. The stone carvings of Val Camonica constitute one of the worlds largest collections of prehistoic petroglyphs. Originally 140,000 documented figures and symbols have recently, with new findings rose to over 300,000 and spread on all surfaces of the valley but concentrated in the areas of Darfo Boario Terme, Capo di Ponte, Nadro, Cimbergo and Paspardo. many of the drawings are from the period, 8000 years preceeding the Iron Age (1st millenium BC)
West of Trentino and Veneto is Lombardy. Cattle are reared on the plains in the central and southern parts of the region and so meat features more in the dishes here, especially veal, a good example being “Ossobuco alla Milanese”. It is hardly surprising that risotto is one of the main dishes of Lombardy as rice grows so well in this region of Italy and rather than pasta, rice is the staple food of Lombardy. Cheese is also a major part of the cuisine of Lombardy and there are several excellent cheeses produced in the area.
