Shakespeare[edit]

Two Gentlemen of Verona is predominantly set in Milan, not Verona. They just come from there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.90.15.94 (talk) 12:53, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Relevancy[edit]

How is the flood relevant to the introduction? Doesn't that detract from its purpose? Bit too much information about flooding there. Summarize Verona in the intro.

What's going on?[edit]

I wish to post a question on the Verona (Italy) talk page, but it keeps being redirected to the Talk:Verona (disambiguation) page, which is where i think my comment is being posted.

This is my question: In the demographics section, where did the info come from?

I would appreciate it if someone could sort both out as i am rather busy at the moment, and also do not how to sort the talk page problem out.

There were page moves in the past and the talk page got separated. Copying this there now. olderwiser 18:56, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Holy Roman Empire[edit]

There is absolutly no mention of Verona's days in the Holy Roman Empire, just a couple of sentences about Charlemange. I find that odd, and hope someone will correct this error. I would, but frankly I dont wanna touch this article.Cheers--Lucius Sempronius Turpio 10:43, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Latin ode[edit]

What has become of The "Latin ode of which we shall speak later on"?

Coat of arms[edit]

I noticed the Italian version of this article has a different, more modern coat of arms pictured. Should this article show that image as well? —Preceding unsigned comment added by L.K (talkcontribs) 21:25, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Muscial instrument factories[edit]

I'm trying to find more information on musical instrument manufacturers in/previously in Verona, especially desidera. Desidera made woodwind and brass instruments including bugles, saxophones and ????

Verona pre world war 2(possibly later) had a good number of musical instrument manufacturers including Desidera, Rampone, Grassi and Stowasser. Only Rampone continues to make instruments in Verona.

from http://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthread.php?t=74642 "Leonildo Desidera and sons was a prized factory from Verona during the fascist era which took over the well-known Stowasser You can find some information on Desidera Instruments on italian speaking fora but is all very vague. Probably you can find more information at the saxophone museum at Quarna di sotto- Novara- (the small town where Rampone still is an Grassi was) http://www.quarnasotto.com/museo.htm " Any information on Desidera would be appreciated. alxx (talk) 07:06, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

UCI World Championships[edit]

I've added a note in the sport section mentioning the UCI World Championships have been held twice in Verona. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.35.135.133 (talk) 06:57, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Climate[edit]

The article states: “Verona experiences a Humid subtropical climate (Köppen climate classification Cfa) characteristic of Northern Italy's inland plains, with hot summers and cool, humid winters, even though Lake Garda's quasi-Mediterranean climate has a partial influence on the city." The bit about a subtropical climate is clearly wrong - as if verona were Sydney or Surfer's Paradise! The Italian Wikipedia correctly says: "Verona has a predominantly continental climate, though Lake Garda, with its sub-Mediterranean climate, partly moderates the city's climate. In summer temperatures are high but the winters are severe." which sounds more reasonable. If no one else changes it I’ll do it myself, but I’m not very good at doing footnotes. Campolongo (talk) 07:42, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Verona is humid subtropical under the Koppen climate classification, as every month averages above zero, the hottest month averages over 22C and there is moderate rainfall throughout the year. The winters are not cold enough for Verona to be classified as continental. The winters are nowhere near 'severe' - Moscow, Minsk and Ulan Bator are examples of cities that have severe winters.

Verona in the NATO but without balconies[edit]

The archives of the Hungarian Museum of Military History have released scans of a WARPAC wargame transcript with regards to the southern Alps, Italy attack direction (i.e. WW3 in Europe played out on paper).

Date: 1965. June 21-25. Participators: - Soviet Army Southern Group HQ (commanded by major-general K. I. Provalov and vice-feldmarshall S. A. Andruschenko) - especially the command staff of the soviet 28th army group - Hungarian 5th and 25th Army Commands

The gist is, ICBM strike hits on some "imperialist" cities were calculated as: 2 x 500 kiloton, Wien city is completely annihilated 1 x 500 kiloton, Verona city is completely annihilated 1 x 500 kiloton, Vicenza city is mostly demolished 1 x 500 kiloton, München city is mostly demolished

As you can see, there wouldn't be a single balcony left in Verona after WW3. I was completely suprised to learn the WARPAC would have targeted such a culturally important city so ruthlessly! 87.97.101.54 (talk) 11:52, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Leonardo da Vinci[edit]

Why is Leonardo mentioned here? his wikipedia page itself says he was from VINCI in the province of FLORENCE, TUSCANY and NOT VERONA, VENETO im gonna erase that soon if nobody objects —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.34.201.254 (talk) 23:12, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
