Caldiero was known in ancient Roman times as Calidarium, stemming from its thermal baths. Later it was held by the bishops of Verona who, in 1206, sold it to the commune. In 1233 Ezzelino III da Romano destroyed the castle. Later Caldiero was held by the Scaligers, the Nogarola counts, the Visconti and then by the Republic of Venice
