In 1935 Cesare Rondolino decided to become a farmer, better to say a ‘rice producer’. Later he decided to purchase the Tenuta Torrone della Colombara that was famous for its fertile fields and abundance of water, thus particularly adapt for rice growing.
In 1972 his son Piero joined him, to help getting on extensive agriculture. By that time, the best and more productive rice varieties were cultivated in industrial scale and were particularly suitable for rice milling plants.
In 1992 Piero decided to start the production of Acquerello Carnaroli rice, to build a direct relationship with final consumers.
In 2000 Piero and his son Rinaldo chose to seed just one type of rice, in order to reach the very highest purity of their crops: the Carnaroli variety. They also started their collaboration with the Slow Food association that pointed out the Torrone della Colombara as their learning center for the University of Gastronomic Sciences (UNISG).
Today the people that contribute to the growth of Acquerello are: Umberto and Anna, Rinaldo’s brothers, who are in charge of the image and communication of Acquerello, and Maria Nava, Piero’s wife, who follows the commercial office.
