    LUCEDIO: CRADLE OF ITALIAN RICE

    The farm in the Principality of Lucedio has its origins about nine centuries ago. Today, the Salvadori family of Wiesenhoff personally leads the company to produce the highest quality Italian rice. It occupies an area of five hundred hectares within a Regional Park.

    The entire production process has a low environmental impact. Packaging takes place in a modified atmosphere that guarantees products freshness and nutritional qualities without preservatives.

    Lucedio is the cradle of Italian rice, the origin of the Grange territory, home to farms spread across a large agricultural area.

     

    THE HISTORY OF THE PRINCIPALITY OF LUCEDIO

    The abbey of Lucedio was founded in 1123 by Cistercian monks from Burgundy who reclaimed the territory and introduced the cultivation of rice to Italy in the mid-1400s.
    Lucedio's geographical position along the Via Francigena was also strategic for the socioeconomic development of the Abbey, which flourished as a center of political power. Three Pontiffs visited in that era.


    Lucedio was also a source of confrontation between the Italian dinastica houses: passed from the Gonzaga to the Savoy, the Abbey became the property of Napoleon in the early 1800s.


    Later, it passed to the Marquis Giovanni Gozani of San Giorgio and Countess Rosetta Clara Cavalli d'Olivola Salvadori of Wiesenhoff, the ancestors of the current owner.
    Today, the Principality of Lucedio continues to be a site of historical and artistic interest.

     

     

    THE COMMITMENT OF THE PRODUCER

    " In the Principality of Lucedio we cultivate history. We take the environment to heart, and embrace new techniques of sustainable production, amd respect the biodiversity of rice paddy. Here you can admire the flight of herons and see the groups of Knights of Italy and Ibis Sacro with their long black beaks while they find their meals in the rice paddies. Walking along the embankments in the warm season, you can hear the singing of frogs who find their natural habitat in the channels surrounding the abbey."
