The first site in Valcamonica recognized in 1909 by Walter Laeng: two rocks with vertical surfaces engraved in many phases during Copper Age.

Here are the Remedellian daggers, with triangular blade and half-moon shaped handle, a "fossil guide" in Rupestrian Archaeology. It is possible to find them also in many Copper Age stelae from the Alps (Aosta, Sion, Arco). The real objects were found in Remedello sud necropolis (grave 83).

Animals take a big place in these boulders: aligned deers, chamois, foxes are engraved in regular rows.

 All figures take place in the panels with an order typical of Copper Age style, showing perhaps a religious aim.

The two boulders were completely re-traced by Footsteps of Man in 1993 for "Le Pietre degli Dei"
(God Stones), an exhibition organized by the Bergamo Archaeological Museum.
