Rosà is a town of 14.328 inhabitants in the province of Vicenza, Veneto, Italy. The name come from the roses which grew in great number along the irrigation channels in the area. The municipality has got 4 hamlets (Travettore, Sant'Anna, San Pietro, Cusinati). Rosà is officially European Town of Sport 2011.
In the hamlet of San Pietro some Roman ashes have been found so we can suppose that there was a Roman village in this area. During the Migration Period the region was invaded by Quadi, Marcomanni, Sarmatians, Alemanni, Visigoths, Svevi, Alani, Unni, Lombards, Franks and Hungarians. The town of Rosà was officially born in 1533 during the rule of the Republic of Venice. After the Napoleonic invasion the whole region was sold to Austria-Hungary (with the neighboring Lombardy to form the Kingdom of Lombardy–Venetia) within which remained until 1866 when with the Third Italian War of Independence it became part of Italy. Rosà was very close to the front during the First World War. After the Second World War Rosà became part of the Italian Republic.
