Sirmione (Bs) - Le difese della Rocca Scaligera





Like almost everything else in the area, Rocca Scalgera (also occasionally known as Sirmione Castle) was built by one of the great families of Verona. The Della Scallas got their wealth and power the really old fashioned way -- they inherited it. And the only way to hold onto power like that is to wield it, flaunt it, and use it. The castle is the result of that need to show just how important they were. So important that they needed to build an entire castle The castle is on a spit of land that pokes two and a half miles out into Lake Garda, making it not only exceptionally peaceful, but also easy to defend in case of attack. And when you're surrounded on three sides by water, what better way to defend against attack than with ships. Rocca Scaligera eventually became home to the Dells Scalla family's fleet of warships which they used to patrol their kingdom. Today, the city of Sirmione remains an isolated haven from the rest of the world. While the drawbridge has been replaced by a pedestrian walkway, cars are not permitted unless you're a guest of one of the local hotels. People still flock to the area for its hot mineral springs and the peace afforded by its distance from the mainland -- just as they did in Roman times.

Il castello di Sirmione (XIII secolo), dotato di torri e di mura merlate, fu base stratetegica per il controllo del lago.
Il famoso castello sirmionese e di epoca scaligera e la sua darsena - ancora in perfetto stato di conservazione - rappresenta un raro caso di fortificazione destinata ad uso portuale. Il mastio viene costruito nel XIII secolo ad opera, verosimilmente, di Mastino I della Scala.
Possente maniero completamente circondato dalle acque posside un portico interno dove e allestito un lapidarioromano e medievale; una scala del secondo recinto, cui si accede da un ponte levatoio, sale ai camminamenti sulle mura: di qui si ammira la sestiva darsena, antico rifugio della flotta scaligera.
Le porte erano munite di diversi sistemi di chiusura: dal ponte levatoio carrabile e pedonale, alla saracinesca metallica e, in epoca piu recente, al portone a due battenti imperniato su cardini.
Sirmione, grazie alla sua collocazione territoriale di confine, diventa punto nevralgico del sistema scaligero di difesa e di controllo e rimarra tale fino al XVI

Castello di Sirmione
--
A partire dal V secolo d.C., Sirmione diviene area fortificata e di controllo dei commerci tra Verona e Brescia. Nel corso del tardo Medioevo, sotto il controllo di Verona, divenne un'importante piazzaforte scaligera, soprattutto per via della sua posizione strategica e della sua facile difendibilita; e a questo periodo che risale la costruzione del Castello Scaligero, costituito tra il 1277 e il 1278, nel punto piu stretto della penisola, immediatamente prima dell'allargamento del promontorio.
Nel 1405 la cittadina di Sirmione, passo sotto il controllo della repubblica di Venezia.

Around the year 1000 Sirmione was probably a free commune, but fell in the hands of the Scaliger(rich family of Verona) in the early 13th century. Mastino I della Scala was probably the founder of the castle. In the same period Sirmione was refuge for Patarines hereticals. The military role of the city continued until the 16th century.
Sirmione was a possession of the Republic of Venice from 1405.
