   An important upland votive site, discovered in 1838, located by Lago degli Idoli at the head of the Casentino Valley at some 1,400 meters above sea level. The ritual deposit of some 620 figurines and 2,000 weapons has been dispersed among European museums, including the British Museum and the Louvre.
