ROSÀ

The Municipality of Rosà is located at the foot of the Vicentine Pre-Alps, at the mouth of the Valsugana, at a crucial point of the connections between Trento and Padua, Vicenza and Treviso. It rises 96 meters above sea level. The community of Rosà has origins dating back to 1450, around the votive church of St. Anthony, becoming an autonomous municipality in 1533. The territory of Rosà, reclaimed and well served by an irrigation system, has seen the presence since the 16th century of noble Venetian families. Several villas were built during this period, including the Dolfin Boldù Villas, Cà Diedo, Compostella, Zanchetta, Minotto, Segafredo and Gioia Grande. In 1622, with a population of 3040, the municipality was divided into 12 districts.

The main economic activities of the time included wool and silk processing, as well as the cultivation of corn. In 1807, Napoleon sanctioned the separation of the southern districts of Rosà with the creation of the new municipality of Tezze sul Brenta. Following the unification of Italy and the world wars, many families were forced to emigrate.

Since the 1950s, rapid population growth has accompanied economic development and the transformation of society from rural to artisanal and industrial. Leading sectors such as ceramics, furniture, construction and engineering have contributed to this transformation. Hard work, a spirit of sacrifice and a widespread sense of solidarity continue to ensure widely shared prosperity to this day.

Today, the municipality offers its citizens the opportunity to enjoy moments of serenity in the open air through routes immersed in nature, culture, art and history. The bicycle and pedestrian paths of the Nordic Walking Park of Rosà are specially designed along irrigation ditches and caves, following ancient paths of our rural tradition. These routes offer naturalistic views that are a unique experience for those accustomed to traversing our territory only by car.
