Rural Culture and Civilization Centre
The Centre is a lawful association whose participants are the Comune di Vicenza, the Camera di Commercio di Vicenza, the Accademia Olimpica, the Provincia di Vicenza and the Regione del Veneto.
Constituted in 1981, the Centre has the aim to promote and increase studies, conventions and meetings to help the agricultural progress and the knowledge and diffusion of the rural culture and civilization, and to support the Library “La Vigna” . Its role is also to favour the etnographic, sociological and historical research (in particular about enology) to preserve information which otherwise should be lost.
The Centre is supported by an Administrative Council which is helped by a Scientific Council to plan and choose year by year the aims and works of the Centre.
