This report summarizes the activities and results of the archaeological investigations conducted by the Catholic University of Milan in Castelseprio (Varese) in 2016 and planned activities for 2017. An excavation was carried out in the medieval house in the south-western sector of the castle and two different phases of occupation have been documented. A sample excavation identified the underlying stratigraphy, allowing to retrieve data and finds from late ancient and early medieval settlement. A survey around the church of Santa Maria foris portas recognized some ancient accumulations, which proved to be collapsed walls of medieval buildings. These finds are the first traces of the "village" outside the castle and in the vicinity of the small church, well known for its important paintings.
