Bussolengo

Description

The origins of town's name are uncertain: for some scholars it derives from the German name"Gauzilo" and the suffix "-engo", which indicates ownership; while for others, it comes from "bosso" (an evergreen shrub widespread through the surrounding areas). Municipality in the province of Verona, located on the border with the territories of the regional capital, in a flat area, it is crossed by the river Adige and is famous for the production of peaches.
Several remains found in the area, attest that it was inhabited since the Bronze Ages and before the Roman colonization is was homeland of several ethnic groups, including the Veneti and the Gauls. Once the Roman Empire dissolved, the lands were easy prey to the raids of Barbarian tribes and the entire region submitted a period of decline. During the XII century, under the rule of Garzapane, a political figure linked to the Emperor Barbarossa, the town was proclaimed Municipality. It belonged to the Della Scala, the Visconti, and the Carrara, in the early XV century, submitted the dominion of Venice. Conquered by Napoleon, it was directly involved in the historical clashes with the French and Austrian troops.
