Brentino Belluno

Description

A municipality in the province of Verona, located in Val d'Adige, in an area between the river Adige and Monte Baldo, on the border with Trentino Alto Adige. It is a town scattered between the countryside and is divided into four districts. The local economy is devoted mainly to agriculture, particular is the cultivation of fruit and vines from which a good Pinot Grigio is produced. It is the ideal departure point for hiking trails, sometimes adventurous, which also propose the fishing and free climbing facilities.
The area of Brentino was chosen for settlements since prehistoric times and became a transit point for those who were directed to Germany. Inhabited in pre-Roman times, the town was colonized by the Romans, who built roads, including the Via Augusta: on which, recently discovered, there are traces of a "mansio" (an old carriage and coach station). After the barbarian invasions, the inhabitants were forced to find shelter on the slopes of Monte Baldo. The town suffered the domination of the Lombards and was ruled by the Della Scala, until it became part of the territories of the Serenissima Republic of Venice. The following historical events are similar to those suffered by the rest of the province, until, in 1930 it succeeded to obtain administrative autonomy, from the merger of two separate districts: Brentino and Belluno.
