It is a municipality in the province of Verona, whose territories, rich in water, are characterized by picturesque vineyards, from which are produced fine wines, such as: Valpolicella, Arcola, Recioto and Amarone.
Exhibits attest that the area was inhabited since the second millennium B.C.. Later it was colonized by the Romans and assumed a certain importance. The first documents to report the existence of the center date back to the first half of the XII century. In the following centuries, the presence of the river Fibbio and a network of roads allowed the town to develop, permitting the opening of a number of activities. The waters of the river powered the large mills, promoting not only the development of agriculture, but also of several industries, such as the production of wool and paper. The closeness to Verona, city that was always an object of contention among populations eager to expand, made of San Martino, a place of in which besieging armies would shelter. In 1927 the municipal area was enlarged with the addition of other villages, today districts.
