Toscolano Maderno is a municipal district in the province of Brescia; it is placed on the west shore of Lake Garda, in the middle of the "Riviera dei Limoni". The locality is about 40 km far from the main city of Brescia and is part of the regional park "Parco Alto Garda Bresciano".
Toscolano Maderno is set on a long promontory between the Toscolano harbour and the Maderno bay, at the feet of the Monte Pizzocolo and the Monte Castello di Gàino. Both mountains offer an enchanting view on the Italian lake and on the extraordinary surroundings.
Toscolano and Maderno became one municipal district in 1928. Both localities have two different village centres, divided by the Toscolano creek. While Toscolano is known for its paper industry (in the valley "Valle delle Cartiere", the rests of the factory have been rebuilt as a museum) and for its publishing industry, Maderno bases its economy mainly on tourism, thanks to its fairy tale landscapes. Beyond that, also the production of wines, oils and lemon juice plays an important role.
