Territorio, Arte e Cultura


Verona, the Scaligera city, is one of the main cities in the Veneto region of Northern Italy. Among Italy’s great art cities, its wealth of art and archaeology has earned it a place on the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.

Verona is famous as the city of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, but also for its Arena: a huge first century Roman amphitheatre where concerts and opera are still performed.

Much of the city’s architectural beauty is due to the restoration work of Cangrande della Scala, who made it a refined landmark along the banks of the River Adige. Every year Verona hosts Vinitaly, an annual wine fair that brings together the most important Italian and foreign wine makers.

The Della Scala Dynasty

The Signoria della Scala governed the city of Verona from mid 13th century to the end of the 14th, and was one of the most influential families in Northern Italy, in a troubled historic period which also featured the legend of Romeo and Juliet: star-crossed lovers who inspired Shakespeare’s tragedy.

The Della Scala family was rich and powerful and under it, at its height, Verona became an important political and economic power. This can be seen today in the imposing city walls along the hilltops to the north and several castles throughout the province.

Lake Garda

Lake Garda is one of the biggest Italian lakes, with an area of approximately 370 square km extending into three Northern Italian regions: Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige and Lombardy.

In Roman times Lake Garda was known as Benaco and was even then an important destination for those who sought a healthy life in a beautiful environment featuring typically Mediterranean vegetation: olive trees, vines and agave flourish due to the lake’s microclimate.

Nowadays Lake Garda is home to a multitude of modern spas that offer relaxing holidays, inhaler treatments and bathing in the many warm springs from over 200m deep aquifers.

Castelnuovo del Garda

Castelnuovo del Garda was named Quadrivum by the Romans, marking its special geographical position, but, following Barbarossa’s invasion in the 12th century, the population was forced to build a new fortified settlement, Castrum Novum.

A small part of the Municipality of Castelnuovo overlooks one of the most beautiful shores of Lake Garda, but its territory extends mainly into the moraine hills where the silver leaves of the olive trees and geometrical rows of vines, world-famous for excellent wine, provide tourists and visitors with unforgettable views of rare beauty. The grape festival in September is just one of the many events that attract both Italian and foreign friends who have a passion for wine.
