Despite having been devastated by the Lombards in the year 602, he recovered and became a free commune 11 to 13 century, when passed through a period of great flourishing. At that time was built the famous Basilica of Saint Anthony, as well as founded the University of Padua. In the early 15 century, the city was annexed to the Republic of Venice.
