From Germany a group on the trail of Bennie.
After the summer holidays, the “low season” brings a mysterious and fascinating air to the lake. It is, therefore, no coincidence that the existence of an elusive “monster” in the depths of Garda (searched last month also by the BBC with the troupe of Jeremy Wade) is the attraction of the season. Buses of tourists from Bavaria are organized to visit places where someone swears they have seen it.

Thomas’s goal is to make Bennie the mascot of the lake, a reference figure that represents the territory as it happens in Scotland with Loch Ness. «In the last few days I presented the project in the Province of Trento and I would like to do the same with Brescia and Verona».

The most famous hunter of freshwater monsters in the world has arrived on the lake, seen and recognized yesterday in several countries of the Brescian Riviera: Jeremy Wade, biologist, and extreme fisherman, the protagonist of the television program “River monsters” broadcast in the world by Discovery Channel and in Italy by D Max. Perhaps Wade will have more luck than the Italian “colleagues” of Italia Uno, on the Garda in 2012 to realize an episode of “Mystery”.
Hunting for Bennie the monster with Jeremy Wade, BBC star and Discovery Channel ” Hunting for the monster: Jeremy Wade of River Monsters has arrived on Lake Garda”.
LAKE GARDA – Jeremy Wade, biologist, and extreme fisherman, is on the trail of Bennie. The conductor of River Monsters today is on the lake with the operators of Deep Explorers.
In the afternoon of today, Wednesday 3, the monster fisherman will scan the depths of the Borghese island, off the coast of San Felice del Benaco, to flush out Bennie, the lizard of the most famous Scottish Nessie.
The Garda episode will be broadcast next spring.
Maybe Jeremy will not be able to show Bennie to his audience, but certainly the lake, given the beautiful day today, will do his great figure.

The most famous “monster” fisherman in the world between the end of September and the first days of October will be on the biggest lake in Italy to find the legendary monster that is said to live in the caves of the Borghese Island.

The hunter of monsters in Bennie’s footsteps.
A monster lives in Lake Garda, and BBC is looking for him.
The creature has been given a rather unusual name, given the antiquity of the first presumed sightings: Bennie. The crew went to the Ugo Da Como Foundation to discover the story behind the monster. There is a large library located there, from the vast archive, which also boasts 400 incunabula and 500 manuscripts, dating back to a period from the twelfth to the fourteenth century.
Many confirm that they have seen Bennie, the monster of Lake Garda that has transformed the tourist resort into a sort of Italian Loch Ness.
