It is assumed that the town's name derives from the German name "Berinza" or the name of the Germanic tribe "Brenni", who settled in this area in ancient times. Municipality in the province of Verona, located on the banks of Lake Garda, the territory of Brenzone is quite large and includes a part of the Monte Baldo and numerous villages and hamlets. It is a popular holiday destination throughout the year; in the Summer for its ideal climate, thanks to the lake, and, in Winter, for the modern and well equipped skiing facilities.
Rock carvings, that date back to 2000 B.C., evidence of presence of settlements in this area since the Bronze Age. The area was colonized by the Romans, who named it Venice-Istria, the tenth of eleven regions, whose borders were assigned by the Emperor Octavian Augustus in 15 B.C. After the Fall of the Empire, the area was easy prey of the Barbarian invaders, including the Huns.
The present municipality was proclaimed in 1950 and is the result of the merge of four existing districts.
