Medole

"The town's name most likely has its roots in the word ""medolo"", a geological term meaning ""stone""; this reflects the rich subsoil of stone, gravel and sand to be found throughout the area, a vestige of the rubble the Garda glaciers left behind when they melted.
Of Roman origins, the historic town centre in Medole is graced by austere Baroque-style buildings dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, classed as architectural trademarks of the area and recognizable by the period marble doorways. The castle, built some time in the 11th century, is the oldest echo of the town's history; only the footprint of the inner courtyard remains and the three-walled Civic Tower with Baroque fore-section.
The deconsecrated and derelict castle chapel was demolished in the late 19th century, and a small private theatre, commissioned by local nobility and dignitaries, was built in its place. This building was in turn demolished in 1946 to make space for a larger town theatre that stages a wide variety of events every year.
In addition to the many important meetings held in the exhibition space in the Civil Tower and Theatre, Medole also organises a full calendar of cultural attractions, showcasing music, fun and local food and wine specialities."
