Greetings from Legnago, Italy.

Legnago is a town and comune in the Province of Verona, Veneto, northern Italy. It is located on the Adige river, about 43 km from Verona.
Its fertile land produces crops of rice, other cereals, sugar, and tobacco.
In the 19th century it was one of the Quadrilatero fortresses, the main strongpoint of the Austrian Lombardy-Venetia puppet state during the Italian Wars of Independence. The present fortifications were planned and made in 1815, the older defences having been destroyed by Napoleon I in 1801.
Main sights
  • Church of San Salvaro (12th century).

  • Cathedral (Duomo), from the 18th century.

  • The Torrione ("Grand Tower"), dating from the 14th century, the only surviving tower from the old medieval walls.

Legnago is the birthplace of the composer Antonio Salieri (1750-1825, who named the local “Salieri Theatre”.
