Abbey Lucedio was founded in 1123 by Cistercian monks who reclaimed the territory by introducing the beginning of '400 - the first in Italy - the cultivation of rice.
As time passed, thanks to its strategic geographical position along the Via Francigena, the Abbey became a thriving center of economic and political power: three were the Popes who visited.
Lucedio was also a reason for confrontation between Italian dynastic families: increased from the Gonzagas to the Savoy, the Abbey became property of Napoleon at the beginning '800.
Later he passed to the Marquis Giovanni Gozani of San Giorgio, ancestor of the current owner, the Countess Rosetta Clara Cavalli d'Olivola Salvadori Wiesenhoff.
