Rotzo is a town of about 600 inhabitants, located on the Asiago Plateau at an altitude of 938 meters above sea level, and covers an area of 28 km². The town is situated at the confluence of the Val d'Assa and the Astico River valley, and is defended from the north by the Venetian Pre-Alps, in particular by Spitz di Rotzo and by Cima Campolongo. The terrain around the small village slopes down to a large flat area, which the inhabitants of Rotzo, the Rotzesi, call "The Campagna", the legacy of an ancient glacial moraine. This is where the area's history began more than two thousand years ago. Famous for its forests and trails, Rotzo is also known for its eponymous potato.
