Gazzo Veronese Wikipedia
Gazzo's area was inhabited since the 4th millennium BC, but the modern settlement has Lombard origin. Its name derives in fact from the Lombard gahagi, meaning "wood". In Roman times it should be already populated, but the inhabitants fled with the fall of the Western Roman Empire. In the 9th century Benedictine monks of the Veronese church of Santa Maria in Organo dried the area. The fief was sold to Federico della Scala in 1307.
The current comune was created in 1929 by the merger of Gazzo and Correzzo, the municipal set being moved to the frazione of Roncanova in the occasion.
Main sights includethe Romanesque 12th-century church of Santa Maria Maggiore, on the Tartaro river.
The ruins of Gazzo Castle.
Roman Tower (4th century AD).
The church (Ceson) of San Pietro in Valle, at Pradelle.
Church of San Prosdocimo, dating from the 15th century, also at Pradelle.
