Pozzarello

Pozzarello is a town in the Italian town of Monte Argentario, in the province of Grosseto, in Tuscany. It is connected to Porto Santo Stefano by the Provincial Road 161, which is about a kilometer away, and is located between the foothills of Poggio Pozzarello (191 m), Poggio Calvello (104 m) and Monte Calzolera (283 m), hills that descend Tyrrhenian Sea where the coast forms the so-called Cala del Pozzarello.

Around this bay was most likely a positio or a maritime port, one of the many buildings of Roman origin on the promontory, called the Dentiliana. Near the bay is instead the Poggio del Calvello whose name derives from the need to clear the surrounding land, making it, in a certain way, bald. [1]

The town, built in the nineteenth century and developed as a summer residential area in the years following the Second World War, has expanded since the beginning of 2000 with the construction of the first housing complexes, commercial activities, educational facilities, sports facilities and the new church of the Holy Trinity.
