A household Principato di Lucedio is located in province of Vercelli in Italy, and was an abbey long before. Back in eleventh century, rice was grown here by Cistercians and that was extremely hard. A region was a land of impenetrable brushwood, and monks had to put forth huge efforts to clean the area and develop irrigation system for rice fields.
Time went by and Principato di Lucedio household had changed owners several times until it became a property of marquis Giovanni Gozani di San Giorgio.
A current owner of Principato di Lucedio is the marquise Rosetta Clara Cavalli d'Olivola Salvadori di Wiesenhoff.
Principato di Lucedio property includes 500 hectares of agricultural lands. This territory is a preserved area, so rice grows in eco-friendly and clean environment, with growing techniques that formed through centuries.
Today, Principato di Lucedio products range includes a great variety of traditional Italian and exotic kinds of rice, as well as pasta made of rice flour, cookies, and spices.
