Killing Cangrande

Discovering the medieval Verona (and not only): play to solve a murder case of 700 years ago.

Verona, July, the 24th, 1329

It’s dawn when a long funeral procession enters from Porta Palio to the Church of Santa Maria Antica. On a hearse, the body of Cangrande della Scala, the lord of Verona, the friend of Dante Alighieri, who died just two days before in Treviso.

For centuries his death remained shrouded in mystery.

In 2004, an autopsy performed on the mummified body of Cangrande has lifted the veil and revealed the real cause of death: poisoning.

Are you ready to investigate a 700 year old murder?

Led by a local registered tourist guide, become real detectives and, walking through the historical centre, let the city of Verona – with the help of monuments, legends, riddles, games and clues – reveal this long buried truth.
