Chiampo boasts a diverse and charming landscape. The valley opens up, rising along the banks of the eponymous river “Campus” in fact means the plain or cultivated field. Some scholars believe it was derived from Klam-po i.e. little Po or a place hidden among thicket and small valleys. Its ups and downs through history have witnessed its rule by Venice until the abdication of the Doge of Venice on May 12, 1797, a date commemorated with the “Tree of Liberty”. It then fell under Austrian rule which continued for over 8 years. In 1806, Napoleon aggregated Veneto to the new Kingdom of Italy which lasted until the 1813 defeat in Leipzig when it was returned to the Austrians and included in the Lombardy-Veneto kingdom. An important movement for Italian unification that took place thanks to the patriots Paolo Mistrorigo and Giacomo Zanella, allowed for annexation to the national government. Starting from that point, the marble, leather and silk industries developed, which found new impetus at the end of World War II. Land was used for industrial purposes here and in fact, entrepreneurship involving leather tanning and then marble started here, achieving and still maintaining international  ladership today.
