Things to do: nature, museums, parks
Capo di Ponte is an Italian comune in Val Camonica, province of Brescia, in Lombardy.GeographyLocated 362m above sea level, Capo di Ponte owes its name to an ancient settlement to the west of a bridge over the River Oglio which leads to a hamlet named Cemmo. The present comune is on the eastern side of the river.HistoryThere are a number of rock art sites in this part of Val CamonicaBetween the eleventh and fourteenth centuries, Capo di Ponte was known as the hamlet of Cemmo—part of the priory of San Salvatore of Tezze.In 1315 the Imesigo marsh, on the plain between Capo di Ponte and Sellero, was flooded by the River Re.On 14 October 1336 the Bishop of Brescia, Jacopo de Atti, invested iure feuds for a tenth of the rights in the territories of Incudine, Cortenedolo, Mù, Cemmo, Zero, Viviano and Capo di Ponte to Maffeo Giroldo Botelli of Nadro.In 1698 Father Gregorio Brunelli says that the village of Zero (or Serio), which stood on banks of the River Re, east of the country today, was swept away by a flood.After the fall of the Republic of Venice the "comune of Capo di Ponte" (1797–1798) was founded, later becoming "comune of Cemmo and Capo di Ponte" (1798 to 1815). Under the Lombardo-Veneto kingdom, the name was again changed to "comune di Capo di Ponte e Cemmo" (1816 to 1859). It has been known as Capo di Ponte since 1859.
