The cultivation of rice was introduced in the plain of Vicenza by the Benedictines, who have the merit of having regulated the water flows, which made the area more swampy. In the district of Lonigo the suitable area for it was Bagnolo, a place of explicit water wealth, with Villa Pisani, one of the most significant works of Andrea Palladio, created while keeping in mind the needs of the cultivation of rice: with the front facing the river Guà, for boarding grains shipped to Venice; and the back overlooking the large courtyard with barns equipped for processing.

The production involves two varieties: the Vialone Nano, typical semifine rice of Veneto, with medium grain, ideal for risottos and thick soups such as "risi e bisi", and Carnaroli, superfine long grain rice, destined for the most current uses in high cuisine.
