Wildlife Pavilions – Architecture CompetitionLocated in the North of Italy between the provinces of Brescia and Bergamo, Lake Iseo – also known as “Sebino” – is the seventh lake by extension in the country and the fourth in Lombardy region. With its stunning landscape, particularly rich in naturalistic and historical heritage, this territory represents one of the most beautiful areas in Italy, as well as one of the most popular among visitors and tourists. 

Towards the southern edge of the lake, it is situated the famous wine region known as “Franciacorta”: a precious land characterised by a hilly topography sprinkled with small villages and covered by wonderful vineyards, where the presence of man perfectly blends with nature.  

Today, numerous footprints left by the retreat of the ancient glacier responsible for the formation of this special environment are still clearly visible. One of the most significant, located on the southern coast, is where the sediments left after its melting rise to shape a morainic amphitheatre. The encounter between this area and the lake’s shore gives life to an extraordinary ecosystem of unique environmental value: the “Torbiere del Sebino” Nature Reserve.

Towards the southern edge of the lake, it is situated the famous wine region known as “Franciacorta”: a precious land characterised by a hilly topography sprinkled with small villages and covered by wonderful vineyards, where the presence of man perfectly blends with nature.  

The formation of Lake Iseo is linked not only to the glacial action, which profoundly shaped the contemporary landscape, but also to the fluvial activity that between 5 and 6 million years ago, due to the drastic lowering of the Mediterranean Sea level, has accentuated the excavation of its bed.  

Today, numerous footprints left by the glacier are still clearly visible and one of the most significant, located on the southern coast, is where the sediments left after its retreat rise to form a morainic amphitheatre.
