  • The Foundation of the monastery cluniecense in Provagliod'Iseo dates from 1083 and is one of the many that were recorded in Northern Italy, in France and in Germany in the first century after the year 1000. To understand the reasons of luck then figures should remember that one of the Cluniac dominant perhaps was the Bishop-count, basically a sort of ecclesiastical Lords not only leaders, but also owners and Lords of Villages that rose around their monastery-habitation, so hearing to claim all rights of Lordship over territory claimed. The Lombards and the Franks first endowed the monasteries of many soils in order to rearrange them, dissodarli had ratified and equip them with irrigation works in order to tear the waterlogging or inselvaticamento where it had fallen by now reduced to subsistence farming. Those 2 people, traditionally nomadic, without economic traditions different from looting and farming wild, who settled in Northern Italy once and become sedentary were forced to entrust to other organizing an economy suited to sedentary lifestyle ... the monks and those who ruled it. During their rule are in fact the Benedictines of Leno, of s. Salvatore and s. Giulia which perform the task of reorganizing the economy of the area, leaning at the local "short" from employees, those of Provagliio, but also Nigoline, and Timoline which together began to reclaim the land turned into swamps around the Bogs. When, after the 1000 some of those "courts" were passed on to the Cluniac order probably agrarian work was carried out together with other economic services offered to the territory. The Cluny, in fact, together with the special commitment of the order were religious-ideological and built a whole series of "Hotels" for travelers of the "strada de Franzacurta", that street, that is, that from Brescia led to Iseo home to a harbour and a market so important, as it was in those places that they cruised goods come from the Valley, from the Po Valley and from the East via Po and the Oglio. The Cluniac monastery of Rodengo Saiano e Provaglio d'iseo, along with hospices, providing accommodation and assistance to merchants and manufacturers and to all those who, for various reasons, along those streets. Documents dated 1658 report that the monastery of s. Pietro inLamosa still belongs to the canons of San Salvatore and is therefore managed to survive the decline of Cluniac Priories more properly linked to land ownership because the Priory of Germany had been able to adapt to new times adapting its function primarily at assisting the pilgrims. Today in the monastery of San Pietro in Lamosa, apart from a few residential areas, home to the Association of friends of the monastery, which operates on behalf of the parish church and the Church of the monastery of Provaglio, the headquarters of the Consortium for the management of the reserve of the Torbiere del Sebino, Robin Bailey, and a training center. The Church of San Pietro annually hosts a concert at the prestigious ancient music cycle "il Canto delle Pietre". In the month of September there is a traditional musical and artistic initiatives and program lately, around Christmas, the two churches are home to a collection of Nativity scenes from around the world.

  • A great place to visit and thanks a lot to the passionated person who very kindly made us discover all the parts of this site.
  • Beautiful, monastery held up well, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the peat bogs. Also the monastery is a beautiful testimony of clunesi monks who began to build around the year 1083. In the monastery are also represented the different architectural styles with which the monastery was further expanded until arriving to the Renaissance.
