Rovigo in search of a new identity

7.1.2019 – The existence of Rovigo was first recorded in 828. Its name is derived from Greek language and in one of its variants means “the city of roses”. After it was, together with the region,  for centuries owned by local and foreign aristocracy, it was in the 19th century, after the Napoleonic period, elevated by the Austrians to the status of a royal city. [...] In the course of several decades, with the development of industrialization, Rovigo turned from an agricultural center into a city with institutions of historical, cultural, artistic, industrial, business and tourist character. In recent years, it has undergone a multifaceted urban renewal and has become an important cultural, educational, business and tourist destination.
