Campolongo Maggiore is a town in the province of Venice, located near the River Brenta, a few kilometers from the Adriatic coast, bordering with the province of Padua.
The earliest traces of settlements in the territory are commonly traced back to the XII century. This dating has been confirmed thanks to the recent discovery, in the district of Bojon, of the remains of a village, consisting of huts inhabited by people engaged in the agricultural activities. Essential for those days was the presence of the stream that allowed rapid and safe movement of goods, in direction of the sea. In the IX B.C., the area was damaged by a flood and, from then to the II century B.C., it was inhabited by the Venetians, later colonized by the Romans, who during the ages of their domain subdivided the land in centurie and built roads. This provided the area with a certain economic development, which was completely destroyed with the barbarian invasions. Campolongo Maggiore was granted to the Bishop of Padua and was directly involved in the clashes between Padua and Venice for the domination of the hinterland.
