Name's origin: the name may hint to an Alona stream on whose shore the eponymous village was built.

History: The numerous palaeoveneti findings found in localitą Molini testify to the presence in this territory of a palaeoveneti hamlet. Alonte first appears in a 753 AD paper, Alonte is also amongst the land Mantua's Bishop sold to a marquis Almerico in the 10th century. In Alonte there were also some of the properties of Antipope Honorius II. It seems that in the late 9th century, during the notorious Hungarians' invasions, Alonte was fortified and became a castle. Little is known about the castle anyway, which was probably destroyed in 1312. In 1312 Alonte was indeed pillaged and burned to smotherings: the smoke could be seen from as far as Lonigo (Maccą). During the Veronese rule, Alonte belonged to the vicentine De Proti family: a document dated 27 July 1393 confirmed Giampietro De Proti rights over Alonte, Corlanzone and Mocendre. Later on, the Traversi family took over.
