Virgilio

Description

Picturesque country village set a few kilometres from Mantua, Virgilio was originally called Quattroville because it was composed by four hamlets (Quattroville means Four hamlets): Bellaguardia, Cerese, Parenza e Pietole. It turned its name into Virgilio in 1884 in order to consolidate its historical role as birthplace of the famous Latin poet Vergilius, who was born in 70 b.C. in the small village of Andes, today called Pietole.
Among the main historic-artistic works worth visiting and bound to the poet, we note the monument to Vergilius by Pasquale Miglioretti, unveiled by Giosuè Carducci in 1884, and the Virgiliana, one of the main Gonzaga country settlements which has preserved its original functionality despite undergoing some changes.Worth recommending, too, the Archaeological Museum which contains some discoveries from the Late Bronze Age found in the necropoles, going back to Etruscan and Roman civilization.
