The origin of the name Venzone is pre-Latin. It was mentioned for the first time in 923 a.C. as “ Clausas de Abiciones” and later “Albiciones” which later became Aventinone, Avenzon, Avenzone and finally Venzone. The name derives from “av-au” – “flusslauf” (watercourse), most likely referring to the Venzonassa stream.
The Rose of Venzone is the typical bread, born by chance from a piece of dough handmade to form a rose to pay homage to the borgo; such bread has the peculiarity of being made with precious flour wheat milled in stone, its rising is totally natural and fat-free.
The local cheese production is excellent: do not miss to taste the numerous aromatic cheeses, both fresh and aged.
The typical dish of Venzone is fresh hand-made pasta, with different seasonings depending on the period of the year: tagliatelle with mixed mushrooms, vegetable tagliolini, frico (a kind of omelet) with pumpkin.
