Soave

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Veneto  /  Province of Verona  /  Soave
Soave is a small comune of the Veneto region in the Province of Verona, northern Italy, with a population of roughly 6,800 people.GeographySoave is located approximately 23km east of Verona and is reachable by use of the A4 motorway exit Soave-San Bonifacio.HistorySoave was a Roman center on the via Postumia that connected Aquileia to Genoa. There are different names about the origin of current name: according to one theory, it could derive from the Suebi (sometimes called Soavi in medieval Italian).The castle was cited for the first time in occasion of the Magyar invasions (934). In the 13th century it was a possession of the Counts Bonifacio, which installed a capitano here. The walls still visible today, were built in 1379 by Cansignorio of the Scaliger family. Their rule was followed by those of the Visconti from Milan and the Carraresi from Padua; the latter lost Soave in 1405 to the Republic of Venice. In 1439 Visconti troops under Niccolò Piccinino captured it back, but Venice regained it soon. During the War of the League of Cambrai (1508), the city was fired and 366 Soavesi killed, but again in 1515 it was reacquired by Venice, which later sold the castle to the Gritti noble family.
