Camponogara (Venetian: Canponogara) is a town in the province of Venice, Veneto, Italy. It is west of SP13, not far from the nearby Brenta river. Economy is based on the production of wine, including Cabernet and Merlot, and manufacturing of shoes and leather products.

History[edit]

Toponimy[edit]

The name of the town derives from Latin by the words campus and nux ("field" and "walnut"), later simplified by Venetian language to Camponogara. That name stands as a witness of the ancient plantations typical of the territory.

Even the names of the Frazioni of Camponogara have a meaning: Campoverardo derives from the Germanic name Eberhard, probably a famous man that visited that territory during the 7th century, Prozzolo derives from the Latin word praedium ("little agricultural fund") and Premaore that can be translated in "prato maggiore" ("biggest field").
