Verona is an ancient city.
Born as a Roman colony in the I century B.C., it has been ruled by the Scaligeris from the second half of the XIII century until 1387. In 1405, the city surrendered and the Repubblic of Venice ruled until 1796, when Verona was conquered by Napoleon. In 1814, the city was defeated by the Austro-Hungarian Empire and it was first annexed to Italy in 1866.
