- BAGNOLO S. VITO
- Il Forcello, located a few kilometers from modern Mantua, is the principal sixth- to fifth-century BC Etruscan Archaic settlement so far known in the Lombardy region of the Po Valley in the north of Italy. The position of the site on the Mincio/Po and the quantity of rich imports (Attic pottery, Greek amphorae, glass, scarabs, Etruscan Schnabelkannen) rank this site as an important commercial settlement. Important domestic evidence of the earlier sixth-century BC phases of the site have been found in the central three-hectare area of the site. Here, two wooden buildings were destroyed and the various activities preserved in situ: food storage, weaving, food processing, wine and oil storage, and fine pottery for consumption.
