After the unquestioned supremacy of Rome, Verona can be considered one of the most important Italian cities for quantity and the excellent condition of Roman remains: from the Arena to the Roman Theatre, squares, streets and walls. The remains are visible just walking around Verona! The Lordship of the Scala family has retraced the appearance of Verona - which at that time was enriched with splendid buildings like Castelvecchio, the Scaligero bridge and the Domus Mercatorum - as well as the Venetian domination, whose signs are easily recognizable in the aristocratic homes and religious buildings. The period under the Hapsburg rule, when Verona was elected capital of the Quadrilateral, has left its traces in the civil architecture and in the construction of the monumental cemetery.
