From the Bronze Age the surroundings of Revere were inhabited and there are many testimonies that told its story in Roman times, but the oldest quotation concerning it was found in a document from 818 which mentions ``in curte domini regis in Refere``.
In 1001 Matilda of Tuscany, strong supporter of the Papacy, donated the Reverese lands she owned to the church, and therefore to the Bishop of Mantua.
Fortified by the population from Modena and Reggio Emilia to defend the banks of the Po from the attacks of the Mantuans, Revere was conquered by them in 1125, until 1332 when it became part of the territories of the Gonzaga.
Due to its greatly strategic position, it was the scene of numerous clashes and wars, bitterly disputed, from the eighteenth to the nineteenth century, by the French under Napoleon and the Austrians.
Protagonist of the Risorgimento uprisings in 1800 (its parish priest, Don Bartolomeo Grazioli, is among the Martyrs of Belfiore), it remained part of the Lombardy-Veneto region, with Vienna as the capital after the defeat of Napoleon, until the passage to the Kingdom of Italy, in 1866.
In the last century, during the Second World War, its territory suffered numerous aerial bombardments by the Anglo-American forces.
