Bric Reseghe Settlement


A Proto-Historic Settlement

Very much like Sant’Antonino di Perti, Bric Reseghe in Finale Ligure is an especially well-preserved specimen of a small Middle and Recent Bronze Age settlement entrenched in an easily-defensible area. In archaeology, the word castellaro is used to define such hill-top Bronze- and Iron-Age sites, including those that are not equipped with clearly-visible defences.

In Liguria, hill-top settlements and proto-historical walls were built with dry-stone walling techniques – commonly used along both the Eastern and Western Rivieras. Several well-preserved specimens can be found in the Finale area which stand out for size, characteristics and because of how well construction materials have weathered.

Bric Reseghe features fortifications and terracing made out of small roughed-out blocks of Finale Stone. The large dry-stone buildings found at this site are especially interesting and archaeological excavations and finds have identified them as being Recent Bronze Age fortifications.
