“Originally it was called the castle of San Martino in Aquaro and is, after the Arena, the most grandiose and imposing monument of the city. Assumed its present name after the construction of Castelvecchio's Castle of St. Peter. It 'a very large castle, which impresses with its imposing appearance and its shape is definitely military, accentuated by battlements along the walls and corner towers covered by the seven, in which the ancient residential use today is evidenced by the remains of the original fresco decoration visible in some rooms. Was erected between 1354 and 1357 by Can Grande della Scala II, that in an era of wars tumultuous sought to transfer his court in a safe manor. The complex consists of two parts, divided by the imposing thirteenth-century walls. To the left, coming from Via Roma, is the Palace of the Scala family, protected by a narrow courtyard with a double row of walls. At the center stands the high main tower (the tower of the keep) from which soars over the river bridge Scaliger, with three arches, and fortified battlements, which integrates the defensive system of the castle, forming a magnificent example of fourteenth-century engineering. On the right side of the structure is a large rectangular courtyard, originally intended to parade at the center lies a curious fountain in the shape of dog, a symbol of fidelity Scala. Miscellaneous ups were the vicissitudes of the castle, often used as a fortress. Under Venetian rule was intended to arsenal and garrison during the Napoleonic occupation was modified the structure and built the body of the building along the river, with the Austrians it was used as barracks for the troops of occupation. In 1923 he became a museum, home of civic art collections at the time held at Palazzo Pompei, and subjected to a first restoration. In 1943 it hosted the Verona process by which the leaders were sentenced to death who had done depose Mussolini and by the end of the war was damaged by Allied bombing. From 1958 to 1964 Castelvecchio was the subject of a new restoration and redevelopment of a museum designed by the architect Carlo Scarpa, who with his speech has brought to light the original structures wherever possible, freeing them from the additions and highlighting the successive layers. Today is also home to the headquarters of the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona with a picture gallery, a sculpture gallery and an art library, open to the public. One of the most important collections of Italian art.”

Church
“On the opposite side of the center with respect to the residence "Il Vicolo". One of the masterpieces of Romanesque architecture in Italy, the Basilica of San Zeno is one of the most important buildings of the city. And 'dedicated to the eighth bishop of Verona, a saint of African origin that are attributed many miracles and the conversion of the Venetian populations. The original building dates back to the fourth century, when a small church was built near the tomb of the saint. Elongated and enlarged in 1117 after the earthquake that struck northern Italy, was completed in 1398 and renovated in the ceiling of the apse in the Gothic style. The façade, tuff and marble features a large rose window, the work of Brioloto. Magnificent portal, a precious artifact coated with 48 bronze panels made between the tenth and twelfth centuries by different authors. There are scenes from the life of Christ and the Old Testament. On the sides of the portal deserve attention bas-reliefs of the twelfth century, with sacred and profane of biblical inspiration on King Theodoric. To the right of the basilica stands a tower of 72 meters which reflects the style of alternating bands of tuff and brick, and which contains the oldest bells in Verona, merged in 1149. On the left the cloister and the crenellated tower, the last remains of a great Benedictine abbey. The interior of the church with a Latin cross plan with three naves, has a peculiar subdivision on three levels: the crypt is at the bottom, topped first by the Church Plebana and then by the Presbytery (or Upper Church) which is accessed by two staircases in marble. Particularly interesting are the baptismal font of the twelfth century, the great monolithic porphyry cup, placed on the left of the entrance, from the Roman Baths and the two wings of frescoes, made between two hundred and three hundred, which testify to the evolution of ' pictorial art in Verona. The works are housed in the apse of greater value greater: the triptych by Mantegna depicting the Madonna Enthroned, and the great marble statue of San Zeno. Made in the thirteenth century, depicting the saint smiling good-naturedly while holding the pastoral staff from which hangs a fish. From the central staircase leads to the crypt, where he kept the body of the saint. Divided into nine aisles with arches supported by 49 columns (all with different capitals) is a pleasant mixture of styles and eras. The remains of the saint, whose face is covered with a silver mask, are kept in a glass case and wrapped in a bishop's dress. The cloister is Romanesque in style and dates back to the twelfth century, composed of numerous small arches supported by coupled columns, contains ancient tombs, frescoes and a shrine which contained the wash of the friars.”
