Also in Governolo the condottiero Giovanni dalle Bande Nere was shot by a cannonball in 1526, later dying out of the wounds received.During the Italian Wars of Independence, Governolo, due to its strategically important bridge over the Mincio River, was the location of two battles:The first (April 24, 1848) allowed the small Modenese army to push back an Austrian inroad against the fortress of Mantua.In the second (July 18, 1848) the Piedmontese general Eusebio Bava conquered back the bridge.References^ All demographics and other statistics: Istituto Nazionale di Statistica (Istat).External linksOfficial website
