Marmirolo

"The history of Marmirolo will be forever linked to the House of Gonzaga and its rise to power. Over the centuries, particularly between 1200 and 1300, this royal family's rule over the land of Marmirolo was absolute.
With such a rich tapestry of breathtaking landscapes, Marmirolo boasts a number of sites of outstanding natural beauty such as the rural ward of Pozzolo and the Fontana forest. A large part of the area is classified as a protected environmental site, not to mention playing host to the Mincio natural park. The name Pozzolo derives from the place name posòl in local dialect, which means “place with water fountain"" as waters of the river Mincio used to be diverted through the village. It is also the starting point of the Fossa di Pozzolo which occupies the former course of the river. The river has all the semblances of a canal as it enters Pozzolo, but on leaving the town it reclaims its legacy as a river, the natural banks once again restored. Located on the last of Garda's Morainic Hills and marking the boundary with Veneto, Pozzolo saw many a battle and passing troops until the Risorgimento period.
The rural ward has a lively, enterprising community and a variety of popular events are held. The Mantua-Peschiera del Garda cycle path much loved by runners and cyclists also passes through the town."
