The Polada culture is the name for a culture of the ancient Bronze Age diffused on all of the territory of Northern Italy and characterized by settlements on pile-dwellings.

The name derives from the same name locality in the territory of Lonato del Gardamarker where the first findings attributed to this culture were discovered in the years between 1870 and 1875 as a result of intense activities of reclamation in a peat bog; the dating of Carbonium 14 on the finds place them between the XIV and XIII century BC (from 1380 ± 65 to 1270 ± 55) ).
