THE VILLAGE OF DORSINO

A destiny foretold in a name

San_Lorenzo_set2020_-Dorsino_-7461.jpg

The ancient Romans used to say, "nomen omen", and for Dorsino they were right, its destiny was foretold in its name! Starting from the 1800s the parish records mention Orsino, the same name found in 1774 in the Atlas Tyrolensis. It comes from the Latin Ursius, referring to the brown bears of the Brenta mountains, who have in fact been leading protagonists in these parts over the years. The “D” was acquired over the centuries, first as D’Orsino and later simply Dorsino.

Nestled on a moraine terrace created over the millennia by the waters of the River Sarca, Dorsino welcomes you on arrival with its large piazza. As the locals say, from here you can take, "do pasi sota i ponti"; or "a stroll under the ramp ways" to admire its interesting rural heritage.

The old farmhouses can be recognized by their traditional architecture with arched doorways, stone structure, and timber construction on the upper floors, with balconies and lofts for drying and storing animal fodder and seeds. They also have characteristic "pont de l’era" which are ramps that give access for carts to the storage lofts.

Along the way you will also find some talking benches. They narrate the history and traditions of the village. There is also the place where the women of Dorsino meet every morning to "far filò" or swop news. You can ask them to tell you the long story of the old Church of Saint George, the oldest building in the village, with its vaulted ceiling covered in colourful fresco paintings by Cristoforo Baschenis.
