Around mid-June the so-called Medieval Festival takes place in Affi, which generally lasts from Friday to Sunday. The event is characterised by a medieval market with an area featuring the historical reenactment of 13th-century trades, processions, themed shows, flag-wavers and food stands offering dishes reworked on the basis of ancient recipes.

Caorsa church: a historical and cultural masterpiece of the territory

This small 13th-century church is located halfway between the municipalities of Affi and Cavaion Veronese, and safeguards numerous historical and artistic artefacts of past civilisations. Owned by a private individual until 1456, it was then given to the Santa Casa di Pietà of Verona by Nicolò Saibante. Later, as the decadence of the nineteenth century progressed, the church was given to the municipality of Affi in 1997, which undertook a complete renovation to bring back this historical and cultural masterpiece of the area.

The historical railway line on Lake Garda

The Verona-Affi-Caprino/Affi-Garda railway was an Italian railway line that connected Verona to Lake Garda and the slopes of Mount Baldo. The first section was opened in 1889, while the whole railway was decommissioned in 1959 due to lack of investment and competition from road transport.

The Garda-Affi section was the first to be decommissioned, in July 1956, followed by the Caprino-Domegliara section in December 1956. The Verona-Domegliara section was converted into a trolleybus on the new Valpolicella road.

The last train departed on 30 April 1959.

Made possible thanks to the will of a promoting committee and supported by many mayors of the area, it represents an important step in the social and industrial development of the country.
