Where Pisogne (Brescia)
Pisogne (Pidógne in camunian dialect) is a comune of 8156 inhabitants in the province of Brescia, in Lombardy, Italy. Geography Pisogne is situated at the northern-east tip of Lake Iseo, where the river Oglio flows into the lake. It is the lowermost commune of the Val Camonica. Neighbouring communes are Marone, Pezzaze, Pian Camuno and Costa Volpino. History Pisogne is mentioned for the first time in 1227. In 1287 the great rebellion led by Camunian Federici noble family against the city of Brescia, was followed by the killing of several of Pisogne Guelphs resident there. Following this fact, the town was fortified between the 12th and 13th century and granted to the Brusati family. In 1518 eight witches were convicted of arson in Pisogne. On November 14, 1727 the bandit Giorgio Vicario, one of the most feared of Val Camonica "buli" (bandits), born in Pisogne in 1695, was murdered. In 1907 Pisogne was reached by the railway line, which is still running.
