Commentary

The community Ornavasso in the Toce valley, ca. 5 km above the river's old influence into Lago Maggiore, is the site of two late La Tène/Roman necropoleis in the localities San Bernardo and In Persona north of the village centre. It lies on the route which connects Lago Maggiore via the Toce (Val d'Ossola) and Diveria and the Simplon pass with the upper Rhône valley at Gamsen.
