Zorzino Castle - Iseo Lake
di Francesco Macario
The villages of Zorzino and Gargarino were districts of the town of "Solto, Riva and Uniti" until 1742, in that year separated by forming an independent municipality.
In period Venetian Zorzino was in Val Cavallina and late eighteenth century there were 100 inhabitants. Today is part of the municipality of Riva di Solto.
Zorzino Castle is located in an area deviated east of the historic core of the village of Zorzino. It is a group of buildings of obvious antiquity built on the edge of a larger area that extends to the Bogn Riva.
In fact, the existing buildings occupy only part of the area locally referred to as Zorzino Castle.
The name therefore includes a core built old west, while to the east are the areas planted with olive trees and two modern buildings, recently built on the existing olive groves.
