Veneto - Italy

In 1866 after the Third War of Independence the Veneto was annexed to Italy. After a controversial referendum, it was occupied by Italian troops, the Carabinieri. In an effort to Italianize the population, the dialects of Venetian were forbidden while often people's surnames and place names were changed.Because of the conditions brought about by the new Italian government, the 19th century became a period of massive emigration. With sorrow Hundreds of thousands Venetians made the difficult decision to abandon their native land and homes and seek more congenial circumstances in South America R

Prosecco is a variety of white grape grown in the Veneto region of Italy, and gives its name to the sparkling wine made from that grape. The grape is grown in the regions north of Venice. Its late ripening has led to its use in dry sparkling and semi-sparkling wines, with their characteristic bitter aftertaste.
