Verona, thanks to its geographical location, has been inhabited since the Neolithic, probably when a village was founded near the southern hill of San Pietro along the river Adige. In Roman times Verona was a very important political and commercial centre of which there are still traces: the Arena, the Roman Theatre, the Gavi Arch, Porta Borsari, the archaeological area of Porta Leoni and the Scaligeri ruins. This area, located in the city centre, just few metres from Piazza Erbe, became in the Middle Ages the seat of political and administrative power. In the following years until the year 1000 northern Italy was devastated by numerous wars, but Verona was always loyal to the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire during the long investiture conflict with the Papacy. The foundation of the Commune was in 1136 with the election of the first consuls, and, at the same time, two parties developed and took the name of Guelphs and Ghibellines. Verona was initially very involved by the conflict between these two factions, because in the city were the most important forces of the Guelph party, while Verona was mainly Ghibellines. On 24 June 1405 Venice took the control of Verona that began a long period of peace until 1501, when the Venetian Republic was attacked by the League of Cambrai. With the Venetian domination Verona became a destination for intellectuals, thinkers and artists of that time, such as Goethe, Heine, Stendhal. In 1630 Verona saw the tragedy of the plague and the population was decimated. The year 1796 marked a very important moment for Verona: the entry of the troops of Napoleon Bonaparte in the city. Then the signing of the Treaty of Campoformio in 1797 established the passage of the entire Venetian area under the control of the Austrians. The Italian story of Verona began on 16 October 1866 with the conquest of Veneto from the Savoy family after the third indipendence war.
