The Garda morainic amphitheater was formed as a result of a complex glacial drew nourishment from the Rhaetian Alps and pushed at the moment of maximum expansion, up to fifteen miles from Mantua, dragging loose material, boulders, pebbles, gravel and sand .

By the deposition of these materials (moraines), originated the moraine hills. With the melting of ice formed on Lake Garda and many small ponds. The landscape as well, is a succession of low hills arranged in a crescent and put together in arcs nearly parallel.

Even the visual impact has changed. Now, shades of green, covering the hills even in the driest season: that of the young grain, forage, field corn, rows of vines, orchards.
