Premana is perhaps the most characteristic town of the Val Varrone, it rises on the low slopes of the mounts Legnone and Pizzo Alto, that are the higher tops of the Orobiche PreAlps. The town, that has a medieval structure, is famous since the Roman age for the handicraft processing of the iron, and the presence of mines in the valley concurred in making Premana provisioning center for war tools. Currently it is a large center of tools.

It is the most populated town of the Valsassina and the Valvarrone, it never knew the depopulation, typical of these areas, and therefore maintained ancient traditions and today it is one of the most interesting towns in Northern Italy, also from the ethnographic point of view.
