Assenza is
one of the 24 small towns belonging to the municipality of Brenzone lying along
the beautiful lake shore at the foot of Monte Baldo. They are all small and
nice villages and districts. 

Assenza boasts
the Church of San Nicola, which was built around the 11th and 12th
centuries. This Sanctuary has a remarkable brass Crucifix located above
the main altar and beautiful frescoes dating back to the 15th

There is also
the villa owned by Giovanni Spolverini, the “Captain of the Lake”.

Its history
is connected to Brenzone, a relatively ‘young’ comune born in the mid-twentieth
century. The development of these areas was slower due to the topography of the
area, its steep and rugged slopes and a few narrow paths which limited the
construction of roads.  

The first
documents proving its existence date back to the 12th century, when
the municipalities began to develop, influenced by some historically important
and influential families, as the Rangoni family. During the medieval period,
the area was dominated by several powerful families, such as the Scaligeri, the
Visconti, the Carraresi and the Veneziani.
