Photographer's Note

Iseo - (BS)
It is located on the southeastern shore of the lake of the same name, about twenty kilometers north of the provincial capital Brescia. Its territory is part of the renowned wine-growing area of ​​Franciacorta.
Iseo, in Roman times, was crossed by an important Roman consular road that connected Brescia with Val Camonica along the lake and ending in Rogno.
The first chronicles that mention Iseo date back to the 9th century, at the time the center depended on the Brescia monastery of San Salvatore. In 1161 the most important families were the Sozzi and Isei, the latter Guelphs and ancestors of the Oldofredi Ghibellines. Federico Barbarossa conquered and burned the castle of Iseo at the end of the 12th century.
In the 13th century it passed under the lordship of a powerful local family, the Oldofredi, until in 1385 it became part of the Brescia area. At the beginning of the 15th century it became the possession of Pandolfo Malatesta, but in 1426 the Count of Carmagnola reconquered the territory of Iseo in the service of the Venetian Republic.
