Campagna Lupia

Description

Campagna Lupia is a town in the province of Venice, located in the Veneto hinterland, whose territories border with those of the regional capital. It is also famous for the WWF oasis of Valley Averto.
Significant finds of prehistoric times attest that the area was inhabited since Neolithic times. Colonized by the Romans, who built an important road through the area, the town offers traces of their influence, mainly in the names of the districts and surrounding villages. After the Fall of the Empire and the consequent lack of order, control and protection, the lands were occupied by several invaders, including the Lombards, who settled in the Veneto area in the year 568. The first documented information of the existence of this town dates back to the IX century. The center was founded by a population devoted primarily to agriculture under the rule of the Bishop of Padua. In 1405, the lands were granted to the Carrara, who in the second half of the XIV century, formed an alliance with the King of Hungary against the Serenissima Republic of Venice. Campagna Lupia, Lova and Lugo became the scenario of clashes and the subsequent defeat of the Carraresi by the Venetian troops. In the early XV century, the town was assigned to Republic of Venice, who ruled here until 1797. After a period of Austrian domination, it became part of the Kingdom of Italy.
