Angoli di Verona.

angoli (4)

Cari lettori vi invito oggi ad una passeggiata nella mia città,  rigorosamente con il naso in su.

Verona fu fondata probabilmente nel Neolitico,  probabilmente avvantaggiata dalla vicinanza al fiume Adige e vanta quindi una storia millenaria.  Nell’epoca romana divenne città importantissima nel nord Italia,  snodo di strade e di commerci;  nel medioevo fu libero Comune;  in seguito finì soggiogata e dominata da famiglie nobili,  quali gli Scaligeri e successivamente dalla Repubblica di Venezia.  Nei secoli più vicini a noi,   francesi (Napoleone) e austriaci se la contesero,  finchè a seguito delle guerre d’indipendenza della metà ‘800 divenne parte del Regno d’Italia.

La sua storia si rispecchia in ogni angolo del centro storico.  Oggi ne vediamo qualche dettaglio architettonico.

Con questo post mando un pensiero alla mia citta’ colpita da un furioso temporale due giorni fa.  Si ha davvero l’impressione che questi eventi siano sempre piu’ violenti…forse per effetto del global warming?

Corners of Verona.

Dear readers,  today you are invited to a walk through my hometown,  always with your nose up.

Verona dates back its origin to the Neolithic Age,  presumably.  The earliest inhabitants chose the place due to its vicinity to the river Adige.   The city grew and became important during the Roman era,  being a main junction among big roads which made commerce easy.  In the early Medieval times Verona turned out a free municipality,  but in the late Medieval era we find it dominated by noble families,  such as the Della Scala.  Later it became part of the Venice Republic and then French (Napoleon) and Austrian dominations established their power over it.  Finally,  in the middle of the 19th century,  Verona became part of the Kingdom of Italy and nowadays the Italian Republic.

The thousand-year old history of Verona is witnessed in its every corner.  Today we’ll see a few architectural aspects in the very city centre.

A little thought to my hometown,  hit by a furious storm last Sunday.  We have the impression that these weather phenomena are more and more violent.  Can it be a consequence of the global warming?

  1. Thank you for the tour! I’ve been to Verona once and remember admiring all those beautiful balconies.

    I believe global warming causes all these storms etc. The same can be seen in Finland, too. Heavy winds all through the year, in my childhood I remember only autumn storms.

  2. Hello,

    Beautiful building and tour of your hometown. I enjoyed the sildeshow and photos. I do believe in the global warming, the storms seem more intense and oceans are warmer. Take care, enjoy your day!

  3. Verona look to be a city with beautiful architecture. Thank you for the slide show. We had a strong wind experience here last Thursday which must have been the same for you later that week. We’re experiencing more of these extreme weather conditions as time goes by.

  4. Verona was supposed to be one of the places in our itinerary for our cancelled visit to Italy in March this year!

    I am still very bitterly disappointed I didn’t get to go to Italy. Dang Covid-19!

    So glad I got to see it through your eyes, Luisella!

  5. È sempre bello per me tornare a Verona anche non di persona ma semplicemente leggendo un bel post! È una città accogliente, dall’eleganza discreta, quella autentica.
    Sono amante della buona cucina e ricordo ancora uno squisito bollito mangiato in un ristorante trattoria nella parte periferica del centro storico, andando verso lo stadio. Forse tu riesci a individuarne il nome?

  7. Cara Giacinta, mi fai una domanda difficile…anche perche’ le trattorie (magari a gestione famigliare) sono numerose. Ma so per certo che un posto dove si mangia uno squisito bollito con peara’ e’ il ristorante Ciccarelli, in localita’ Madonna di Dossobuono, in via Mantovana, proprio all’inizio del perimetro cittadino. Un locale storico. Adesso hai un motivo per tornare a Vr ancora una volta. Ciao e buon weekend!

  8. Nice to see your corner of Verona and yes, I say yes to global warming, for me it works so that more and more storms come and the climate changes.
    Take care, enjoy your day!
