Valpolicella, three kilometers from the main town
and 500 meters above sea level. Protected by the
Pieve di Santa Maria Valverde, which overlooks it,
over the centuries it has been the crossroads of
trade in the Marano di Valpolicella Valley. During
the Second World War it was the center of the
valley. The first schools in the area were born in
this village; At the time there were three ovens,
three taverns, shops, cellars, a cobbler, three
carpenters, a blacksmith, haberdashery and tailors.
Here too, as in the other villages in the area, there
was a "malga", where the milk was "dripped" in
turn. Families owned a few dairy cows, and they
took turns collecting the entire milk production,
which was recorded with the contributions of each
family. it was sold or worked to obtain butter
(butier), cheese, ricotta (puina). In the 1960s, many
families from the district moved towards the plain,
where it was easier to find work.
In recent years, also thanks to the numerous
renovations, the families have increased, about
forty, made up of several young couples with
children who have given new life to the district.
