HISTORY AND CURIOSITIES
The symbol of Torri shows a wooden tower, which was realized to protect the bridge on the river Tesina. The tower was destroyed in 1313. Torri di Quartesolo’s name comes from Latin word Quartixolum which means the fourth mile from the city hall of Vicenza. In the nineteenth century, Torri was united with Marola and Lerino towns, after Napoleonic pillages. Lerino and Marola are smaller than Torri.
Marola is famous for Blessed Eurosia Fabris Barban and the place where she is buried. She was born on 27th September 1866. During her life, she did many miracles. Through her prayers and devotion she helped many women to have a child. She died in 1932 and she was buried in the church of Marola. She was beatified by Benedetto XVI in 2005. All people remember her like “Mamma Rosa”, for her miracles.
The food specialties of this territory are the local wines, the sausage meat, the traditional bread and the white asparagus (just on April – May).
