Moniga is a small town on Lake Garda which lies in the heart of the hills between Desenzano and Salò. Thanks to the remains of a pile-dwelling village it has been possible to ascertain that this area was already populated during the Early Bronze Age (1800-2000 b.C.). In the second half of the 12th century it became a feud of Ugone da Poncarale and in 1196 it was donated to the monks of Leno. Moniga was subjected to a series of dominions, among which that by the Republic of Venice and subsequently the Austrians, with whom it was linked until 1859. From 1928 to 1947 it became a part of the Commune of Padenghe. Its unusual name is believed to come from that of the goddess Diana Muchina, who, according to the legend, was said to have a sanctuary in the area.
