RITA DAL PRÀ
Rita's grandfather founded Ceramiche Dal Prà. She has been its proprietor for 50 years since she returned from schooling in England to help her ill father.
Rita was blessed with a passion for and understanding of painted and hand-made ceramics when she took the reins of the company. She led the company through the eras of Japanese and Chinese domination, maintaining the policy of producing only hand-fashioned fine ceramic artware and never abandoning the great shapes and designs that made the name famous.
Valentina Meneghini is the forth generation of Dal Prà. She has joined her mother Rita to share the joy of a business with a showroom and museum of many thousands of works of fine ceramic art including her own creations produced for special exhibitions and promotions.

The town of Nove is near the heart of Grappa country, with Montegrappa crowning the landscape to the north. The name, Nove, comes apparently from the old Italian for ‘new’ deriving from the Latin Novus, not from 'nine' as in modern Italian. The lands where the town is located used to be part of the Brenta river,but as it receded, the soft lands that were exposed were found to be rich in clay. In Nove artisans are re-emerging in pottery and wine as well as jewellery, and their works can be admired in galleries, bars and restaurants around town.
