Toscolano Maderno

They are two separate centers, divided by the river Toscolano. It has Roman origins, as evidenced by the remains of a large villa with pieces of mosaic floor. In the final part of the river valley, since 1300 it has developed one of the first in Europe, the paper industry. This section is called the Paper Mill Valley, where there is an interesting trail.
