Negrar

Description

Historians attest that the town's name derives from the Latin word "niger" ("black", referring to the particular color of the soil). It is a municipality in the province of Verona, whose territory is divided into two parts (one flat and one hilly) and is located on the border with those of the regional main centre. The city's economy is based primarily on the production of fruits and fine wines, such as: Recioto, Amarone and Valpolicella.
The numerous finds discovered in the area attest the presence of settlements since the Palaeolithic Ages. In pre-Roman times the Arusnati settled here, followed by a Roman colonization. After the fall of the Empire the area was dominated by various populations, including the Lombards. In the XI century, Negrar submitted a significant population increase and in the first half of the XIII century it took advantage of a series of tax right exemptions. The XIV century was characterized by the domination of the Della Scala and the end of civil wars, brought to the area a period of peace and high productivity, followed by a period of Government of the Republic of Venice and the construction of beautiful Summer residences by the nobility and the rich Venetian bourgeoisie.
