Historical view: Flooded city comes up to the surface again

Imagination can put the time in many things, but sometimes, the reality is actually even wilder.

It can be said, is the case of an Italian town from the middle ages. The village of Fabbriche di Careggine is like a ghost town been abandoned and buried at the bottom of a lake near Tuscany.

the City was in the 13. century founded by blacksmiths and were known for their jernproduktion.

But in 1947, it was not as good for city residents, because a dam was to be built exactly where the city is located.

Why were the residents of the city moved to the nearby town of Vagli Di Sotto and the beautiful old village was flooded to create the artificially-made lake, Lago di Vagli.

Since then, the beautiful city on the bottom of the pond, where the village's stone buildings, cemetery, bridge and the church of San Teodoro, incredibly, remained intact. Only four times since 1947 has been allowed to see the light of day. And precisely it can be about to happen again, writes la Repubblica.

When the pond needs to be restored, or there must be something the maintenance, causing the city namely allowed to come above the water when the pond is drained of water. And it gets the tourists to flock to the mysterious undervandsby to see the ancient rubble.

the Last time the city saw the light of day was in 1994. 27 years after - that is, in 2021, it will once again happen, that the city comes on top of the water.
