The pile-dwelling site of Frassino is situated on the southwestern edge of a morainic lake, surrounded by the picturesque vineyards of Lugana, not far from the sanctuary Santuario della Madonna del Frassino. The submerged archaeological area, which has been known since the start of the twentieth century, lies at about three to four meters below the surface of the lake. The results of the recent coring indicate that the settlement also extended into an area that nowadays is dry land – as far as approximately seventy meters from the present shoreline. Pottery with engraved decorations, shells, metals and utensils made of bone, stone and wood were also found.

The village, previously detected inside the lake, extended also onto what is now dry land. Among the archaeological materials found, a multi-spouted jar, similar to a container from Bande di Cavriana is worth mentioning.
