ponte vecchio

The famous bridge that connects Bassano and Angarano was first mentioned in 1209 by Gerando Maurisio.After that it was destroyed by wars and floods of the Brenta river and reconstructed again and again.

During World War II Bassano was once again placed in the front line and German troops caused the death of about 500 people and the hanging of 31 young men from the trees along the streets.Because of those tragical activities and the sacrifices of the population, the city was awarded the ¨Gold Medal for Military Value¨

great view from the bridge

The name of the city comes from Bassianus who was a Roman farmer, owner of a fundus, a farm estate.
