AMSL height: 13m
Inhabitants: 1258 (in 1998)

Name's origin:It is hard to assert what the name of the town originally was, since it has come down to us in many different forms: Aguiglarium, Aquilarium, Agugiaro, Aquilario e Lagugiaro. Some link it with with aquila (=eagle) or acucula (=a thicket).

History: Agugliaro first appears in a 1297-1303 document, where Agugiaro'schurch is mentioned. From 1288, 14th and 15th century documents it seems that what is now Agugliaro's territory alone was shared by two different towns: Agugliaro and the today no-more-existent Fogliascheda. In 1462 Alessandro Pigafetta bought from Serenissima Republic of Venice the town and territory of Agugliaro as a county, and in 1473 and in 1481 Matteo Pigafetta bought land from the Dal Verme family, which seems to have in a very ancient past the most conspicuous in Agugliaro (from Il Veneto paese per paese", Casa Editrice Bonechi)

Via Roma, 1
36040 Alonte (VI)

Districts: Corlanzone, Stamberga.
Area: 11.16 Kmq
AMSL height: 13m
Population: 1200 (in 2001)

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 località 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 (Maccà). 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.

Barbarano - Mossano

More information is available on Barbarano's official website at: http://www.comune.barbarano-vicentino.vi.it

Piazza Roma, 35
36021 Barbarano Vicentino (VI)

Districts: Ponte di Barbarano.
Località: Mezzana, Monticello, San Giovanni in Monte, San Pancrazio.
Area: 20 Kmq
AMSL height: 45m
Population: 3780 (in 2000)

Name's origin: probably from Latin fundus Barbarianus, taht is, Barbarius' land, property.

History: archaeological findings testify to the presence of a village in this territory long before the Roman era. Barbarano's castle used to be one of the most important in Vicenza during the Middle Ages: tradition says it was built in the 8th century, but it is first mentioned only in a imperial decree of year 1000 AD, when the Emperor bestowd the fief of Barbarano onto the Bishop of Vicenza. After having fallen for a short time in ezzelino da Romano's hands, it was gained back by the Bishop who lost it definitely to Verona's lords in 1312. They made of Barbarano the headquarter of a huge administrative district, and, after the wars between the lords of Verona and Padua, Barbarano with all of Vicenza became part of the Republic of Venice in 1404.

Brendola

Brendola

Brendola

Sede comunale:
Piazza Marconi, 1
36040 Brendola (VI)

Sito web: www.comune.brendola.vi.it

Località e frazioni: Vò, Pedocchio, San Vito, Cà Nova, Cà Vecchie, Goia, Rondole e San Valentino
Superficie: 25,52 Kmq
Altitudine: min 39 max 343 m.s.l.m.
Abitanti: 6231

Origine Toponimo: Origine del nome. Forse dal vocabolo "brento", con significato di conca; tenendo conto del veneziano "brendolo", cioè trogolo dell'arrotino, il nome può aver tratto origine da qualche scavo, nel terreno, a forma di conca, o anche dalla presenza di qualche trogolo, vasca o tino d'acqua.

Storia: Brendola ha un lontano passato, testimoniato anche da numerosi reperti archeologici rinvenuti in diverse località. La prima segnalazione di ritrovamenti di epoca romana risale al 1682, quando venne rinvenuta una tomba intatta con corredo composto di vasi di terracotta. Dal 1946 in poi si sono succeduti numerosi rinvenimenti di materiale archeologico, alcuni dei quali sono esposti presso la sala consigliare del palazzo municipale. La scoperta più importante, comunque, risale al 1995 quando, in località Soastene, venne rinvenuta una strada risalente al Neolitico. E’ la strada più antica finora scoperta e questo dimostra come, sin dal Neolitico, Brendola fu abitata. La storia di Brendola, tuttavia, si accentra attorno al suo Castello (o Rocca dei Vescovi), che per molti secoli rappresentò la struttura del potere ed il centro di una giurisdizione civile e vescovile. Il primo accenno storico al Castello lo si ha nel 983 in un privilegio concesso da Ottone III al Vescovo di Vicenza. Nella seconda metà del XI secolo, durante le lotte per le Investiture tra il papa e l'imperatore, numerose furono le lotte tra nobili e vescovo che si protrassero sino al XII secolo. Durante questo periodo, comunque, Ezzelino da Romano ridusse quasi alla miseria la diocesi vicentina. Solamente dopo la morte di Ezzelino i vescovi di Vicenza riacquistarono il possesso del castello. Nel 1311 Vicenza passò agli Scaligeri, Signori di Verona, i quali occuparono anche il castello di Brendola. Nel 1413 il castello venne gravemente danneggiato dai mercenari ungheresi guidati da Pippo Spano, mentre nel 1513 la rocca venne occupata dagli spagnoli per esser ripresa, l'anno successivo, dalla Serenissima ad opera del generale Bartolomeo d'Alviano. Da questo momento la Rocca dei Vescovi perde la sua importante funzione di centro di potere. Per Brendola si apre un nuovo periodo di storia che si inserisce in quella più ampia della Repubblica di Venezia prima e dell'Italia dopo.

via Ponte, 64

Area: 11.63 Kmq
AMSL height: 57m
Inhabitants: 2409 (nel 2000)
Market day: on Saturday morning in Piazza Marconi (Ponte di Castegnero

Name origin: the most likely explanation for the name is the one that links it to the chestnut (castagno), of which there might have been many in older days. The town must date back from Roman times, since it was traditional for Romans to name towns after some natural feature of the zone. Others do anyway relate this name to the Germanic Castrum nedum, a kind of fortress, a hypothesis that could be supported by the fact that in a 1219 document the town is called Castelniero, and by the presence of a "Via Castello", that suggests some kind of now disappeared ancient military building.

History:Castegnero territory has been inhabited ever since prehistoric times, especially on the hills, as many archaeological findings prove. During the Longobard domination of Italy, that lasted for about 2 centuries, Castegnero, due to its strategical location, became a military outpost; the Longobardic presence in Castegnero might also be confirmed by the title-saint of the local church, St.George, much worshipped by all Longobards. After the arrival of Benedektine monks, in the late 8th century, who supported massive improvements in agriculture, the landscape of Castegnero slowly but dramatically changed, as they promoted the claiming of swamps, the clearing of woods, as well as the building of hospitals and shelters for the poor. In a 1431 and in a 1443 document it is recorded the presence in Castegnero of a St.Michael's Hospital. In 1322, when the Veronese Scaligeri lords conquered Vicenza, Castegnero's fortress was destroyed. In 1404 it began for Castegnero the relatively undisturbed age of Venice's dominion. During this period, Castegnero and Villaganzerla were two distinct boroughs, with distinct administration; Villaganzerla was absorbed into Castegnero in 1816, by imperial decree.

Longare

Longare

Longare

More information is available on Longare's official website at: http://www.comune.longare.vi.it

via Marconi, 26
36023 Longare (VI)

Districts: Costozza, Lumignano, Secula.
Population: 5352
AMSL height: 29 m.
Area: 22 Kmq.

Name's origin: Longare: from Longarì, a town outstretched along a river, or from Longari, the Hungarians that during the Middle Ages often raided this land; Costozza: from Custodia, a fortress, or because once prisoners were kept in custody in Costozza caves. Lumignano: from Lumen Iani, place where a temple of Ianus used to be, or from the torches that were used to shed light inside the caves.

History: the earliest inhabitants of Longare used to dwell in the caves. In time they would start building huts and villages near the watercoures, in sheltered places. During Roman domination Costozza's white stone was much appreciated, and Costozza became a busy trading centre, until the Huns' invasion (452) when it all suddenly came to an end. Costozza did ayway survive during the Longobards' rule: ifrom a 753 document we know that some Anselmo sold Costozza to the Benedektine monastery Nonantola, near Modena. Thus we know exactly when the monks arrived to Costozza and started their work of ammelioration of local agricultural and economical conditions. S.Mauro's Church soon became the mother-church of many more local churches, and, as Costozza belonged to his personal posessions, Vicenza's Bishop had a large castle built there. On the 13th of June 1292 Costozza approved its first Comune Constitution. During the following century, the continuous wars between Padua and Verona, that Vicenza was not able to fight off, left the population impoverished and forlorn. From 1404 on Longare belonged to the Republic of Venice: during this relatively peaceful age Costozza stona became popular again, as it a main feature in the building of villas and palazzi. After the fall of the Rupublic, Costozza and Lumignano slowly began to decline as administrative centre, to the advantage of Longare. In 1866, when Veneto was united to the Kingdom of Italy, Longare's preheminence over the neighbouring towns was officially ratified by the status of comune.

Name's origin:called "Monte Garda" by Albertino Mussato who also wrote of a castle on the hill, this town is named after the longobardic warda, a military outpost derives its place name from the warda longobarda, a kind of formation similar to the Lake Garda. The Longobards' presence in this place is also confirmed by St.Giustina's Church, a Saint the Longobards were very devout to.

History: Montegalda was inhabited since the Roman era, as a Roman inscribed stone and a bronze piece prov, but we only find it mentioned in a 968 document. In the 11th century it belonged to Padua, and was bought by Vicenza in 1150. According to the "Liber regiminum civitatis Padue" the castle was built on Mount Buso in 1176 on the remnants of the Longobards' fortress. Being halfway through Vicenza and Padua, it had to suffer much during the Communes' Age wars. Repetedly destroyed and rebuilt, the castle also gave hospitality to condottieri Jacopo Dal Verme and Facino Cane. In 1475 the Serenissima epublic gave to Chiereghino Chiericati as a token of gratitude for his loyalty. In 1511 Emperor Maximilian stayd in the castle, and in 1514 it was taken by the Spanish troops; in the 18th century the castle was eventually turned into a villa. Worth visiting is also Villa Roi-Cobalchini-Fogazzaro, where writer Antonio Fogazzaro spent a few years and set some chapter of his novel "Little Modern World".

Market-day: Monday

Name's origin: it is hard to assert the origin of this placename: it may be related to some monscalidae o monscalidulae(a spa); or the German Warte, military outpost, or Wald, a forest; again the German Halde, a slope; Galdi , the Tartarian God of Fire; Mons Gaudii, the Hill of Pleasure, becouse of the healthy weather or the fertile land; Monte Claudia, possession of the Roman Claudia Gens; it may even refer to Roman Emperor Galba (5 a.C.-69 d.C.), successor of Nero, who maybe fought a battle hereby; Guald, a German family come to Vicenza in 960 in the train of Emperor Otto II (955-983) and was given land in this territory; Galdio, Galdere, Galdenza, Galdimento used in the 14th century as synonims of fief; Gualdana (Waldam, assault), a German word meaning bandits, raiders. etc. etc. etc. E dato che Montegalda era stata luogo di ripetuti incontri tra Padovani e Vicentini per giostrare dapprima e successivamente per battagliare davvero, può essere che ne sia derivato il toponimo di Montegalda. Opinione, dello storico e poeta padovano Albertino Mussato, (Padova 1261-Chioggia 1329) sull''etimologia Montegalda e, di riflesso Montegaldella: Mussato sostiene che Montegalda è la correzione di Montegarda, inteso come il sito posto a guardia per vigilare. In tal modo Montegalda sarebbe un baluardo di difesa per il Vicentino Orientale, come per l''Occidente sarebbe quello di Montebello (Mons belli). Montegaldella dunque, come una sorta di sentinella, di guardia verso il Padovano, quella posta al di là del Bacchiglione, alle pendici degli Euganei, lungo la fossa Bandezzà, linea di divisione, oggi come ieri, tra i municipi di Padova e Vicenza, e luogo di stanza delle insegne militari Padovane.

History: this town seems to have been founded by the Longobards, as it is testified by a Longobardic chapel discovered in the foundations of St.Micheal's Church. In the heart of the town there is a villa so pretty it is nicknamed The Delightful. An ancient tower adjoining this villa let us suppose it used to be a castle, not distant from the Montegalda one, which is very likely, this being once a borderland between Vicenza and Padua.

Area: 14.51 Kmq
AMSL height: da 20m a 420m
Population: 2278 (in 2001)

Name's origin: according to some scholars "Nanto" may derive its name from the Celtic word for stream, watercourse, while others think it comes from the Germanic personal name Nanth, although legends say that the town existed in Roman times, under the name of Nantona.

History: Nanto's territory was inhabited since the most ancient times, as findings in Trane cave prove. Many objects dating back to Roman times have been found in this area, which was famous for its quarries of soft white stone. The first time we find Nanto mentioned in an official source is a 1023 document in which Emperor Conrad II bestowd the town onto the Bishop of Vicenza. A Counts of Nanto family later ruled the town, and built a castle in its domain. The castle was eventually destroyed by condottiere Ezzelino of Romano. Due to its central position, Nanto was to suffer during the wars between Ezzelino and the Paduans, Vicenza and Padua and between the Republic of Venice and the Cambrai League. In 1736 64 French soldiers and their officers stayed in Nanto as they marched south.

Districts: Pilastro, Spessa.

Area: 18.11 Kmq
AMSL: 43m
Population: 3212

Name's origin: Many local scholars and historians have given an opinion about the town's name's origin: the most credited one is that the town was given its name in Roman times after the Aurelia family, who might have had properties in this area

History: that Orgiano was inhabited in Roman times is proved by two carved stones walled in the Town-Hall's facade. One reads "M.Terentio" (to Marcus Terentius). It was later inhabited by the invading Longobards, as the many tombs of theirs that have been found testify. In the 11th century Orgiano was a rich town, housing the headquarters of a Vicariato Maggiore (an important administrative district), to which belonged ten minor villages: Agugliaro, Asigliano, Campiglia, Campolongo, Fogiascheda, S. Germano, Noventa, Poiana, Sossano e Villa del Ferro. Two castles protected the town: one on the hill, the other one on the plain, both strategically located. The upper one was to have a troubled life: often sieged by the Veronese and the Paduans, until its destruction in 1313. In 1431 the town's council drew up its "Statuta Communis Orgiani", an interesting collection of civic laws that was to set the standards for all similar exploits in Vicenza in the years to follow. Orgiano ceased to be a Vicariato in 1797, when the Republic of Venice ended. A curious episode in local history occurred in 1897, when 32 women were arrested for assaulting the Town-Hall, after the priest set them on the anti-clericalist mayor. They were all acquitted.

Name's origin: Pojana's name comes from the Longobardic terms "plojum, plojana" which became common after the Longobardic invasions of 600 - 700 a.D., which mean "cultivated land".

History: Pojana Maggiore is the southernmost Comune in the Vicenza provinceè. Its territory, where once the river Adige used to run, was inhabited by man since Neolithic times, as some pottery-findings prove. Emperor Augustus allotted this reion to veteran soldiers, as a token of gratefulness, to claim and cultivate.

Name's origin: from the Latin villa, farm, rural village.

History: on Monte Tondo archaeologists have found some Bronze Age items that most likely belonged to the Palaeoveneti fortification system so widespread in the Berici-Euganei area. Numerous and diverse are the remnants of Roman inhabitation: the most significant being some chiselled columns found in a ditch. In 12th and 13th century papers Villaga is said to belong to Barbarano's curtis. From those papers we also know that Toara was an independent parish, not subject to Vicenza's Bishop's control, who did anyway try many times to extend his power over it. Since Villaga was not independent, there was no castle on its territory, so the castle named in a 1495 document as hora castri Villaga Barbarani, what was probably implied was the still existent Belvedere's castle.

Localities;: Gazzo.
Area: 9.08 Kmq
AMSL height: San Gottardo 420m e Zovencedo 360m
Population: 898 (in 2001)

Name's origin: some connect the town's name with Juppiter-Jovis, Sede Jovis (Juppiter's Seat), while others relate it to the Latin word Jugum (hills).
History: Zovencedo's territory comprises 12 hills. Many watercourses run in this territory, the largest ones being the Liona Stream and the Gazzo Stream that runs from S.Gottardo to Acque di Pederiva, where it joins the Liona. The earliest information about Zovencedo date back to the Middle Ages, when it was part of Barbarano fief, which was bestowed on Vicenza's Bishop in the 10th century by the kings Hugh and Lothar of Provence. The castle is first mentioned in a 1158 decree signed by Emperor Frederick Barbarossa. The Bishop lost the castle to the Counts Maltraversi, who lost it to the Ezzelini in 1316; it eventually became the Town's Hall. All that remains of the castle now is a tower and some other buildings, all turned into private dwellings. St.Nicholas' Church was built in the11th century, and in the 12th it became an independent parish. From official papers we know that from at least as early as the 13th century the Bishop of Trento took care of appointing German-speaking priests to this parish, another proof of the presence of migrants from Bavaria in Berici Hills during the Middle Ages: not by chance the little church built in the 14th century in homonymous village was dedicated to St.Gotthard, a popular Bavarian saint. Unfortunately, this ancient village church was lately destroyed. After the Council of Trento two religious brotherhoods were established in Zovencedo with the aim of galvanizing religious feelings amongst the population, the Brotherhood of the Holiest Sacrament and that of the Rosary, but they were both suppressed during the Napoleonic governament.
