Madonna della Neve

It’s a building with a small church built in the 17th century by the Carlotti counts,

which functioned both as a summer home and as an escape from the bubonic plague.

They had understood that the disease was infectiously transmitted and had this getaway built in the mountains where they escaped for two whole years along with their servants, abundant provisions and firewood.

Here they managed to survive, while in Verona over 60% of the population of 53,000 died. On August 5th every year the town’s Madonna della Neve festival is celebrated.
