Cities and villages

Water is synonymous with life, movement, commerce and the past and present settlement structure of the province of Rovigo is proof of this.

From the capital, Rovigo, to the main cities, Badia Polesine and Lendinara up to the smaller ones, Fratta Polesine, Arquà Polesine, all places are linked to the presence of a watercourse, that is still active or that has left its mark in the geomorphology of the territory.

Small towns that have their origins in great history, which appears evident in the architectural styles, in industrial archeology or which is hidden in the immense wealth of archival funds or in the numerous museums scattered throughout the province of Rovigo or, again, in the oral tradition of the intangible heritage told by the storytellers of the area.
