- 3 January - 1117 Verona earthquake. The earthquake was rated at VII (Very strong) on the Mercalli intensity scale, and struck northern Italy and Germany.

Many other churches, monasteries, and ancient monuments were destroyed or seriously damaged, eliminating much of Verona's early medieval architecture and providing space for a massive Romanesque rebuilding.
