LIZZANO IN BELVEDERE Travel Guide
Lizzano in Belvedere is a village of 2,250 inhabitants in the province of Bologna. Its origins are ancient, in fact at Rocca Corneta and the Sboccata dei Bagnadori were even found evidence of the existence of settlements dating back to the Stone Age and the Bronze Age, although probably not as stable settlements, as the population were mostly nomads. It was with the arrival of the Etruscans, the Ligurians and the Galli Boi that the first fixed and consolidated settlements were constituted, as shown by the "mummies", heads carved into stone of houses or chimneys as a symbol of good luck (probably a custom made by the Galli's habit of keeping the heads of enemies as trophies). During the Middle Ages, the entire territory was under the control of Ravenna's Exarchate, as shown by the temple of Delubro, the only remaining part of the Pieve of Lizzano, dedicated to the Oriental saint Mamante. In 753 the name Massa Lizano for the first time appears. For a long time the territory was under the control of the city of Bologna, and in 1227 a fortified castle was built, of which unfortunately only the ruins remain, on Mount Cimbriano.
