"Small town but great its nobility by right of fame."

In Grumolo delle Abbadesse, halfway between Vicenza and Padua, rice has been grown since the 16th century. The municipality takes its name from ‘abbadessa’, the superior of the Benedictine nuns of St. Peter’s in Vicenza.

The abbesses, who introduced the cultivation of the cereal in these areas, were responsible for the drainage of the marshes and swamps, irrigation and the construction of canals “per condur a Grumolo acque per risara” (to bring water for rice to Grumolo), as mentioned in some archive documents, many of which are still in use today. Later, the families of the Venetian nobility, who in the meantime became the owners of these places, continued the cultivation of the cereal using local farm labour. Today in Grumolo delle Abbadesse rice is work, history and tradition, as well as landscape and culture. Grumolo delle Abbadesse is located between Padua and Vicenza and has a population of around 3400 inhabitants.
