Marostica, is a town and comune in the province of Vicenza, Veneto, northern Italy. It is mostly famous for its living chess event and for the local cherry variety.HistoryThe name of the city can be traced back to the Venetic (Adriatic Veneti) language and recalls the hills (mar/maros) and the several streams of water (rost) coming down from the adjacent mountains and the verb "to have" in Venetic language (ga). Hence the name means "that has mountains and hills". Several Venetic findings have been discovered, dating back to the first millennium B.C. When the Adriatic Veneti federated with the Romans, they slowly abandoned their language; the modern Venetian language descends from Latin and is not related to Venetic.Between the 11th and 13th centuries, the locality was greatly influenced by several members of the important medieval family from the Veneto, known as the Ezzelini :it:Ezzelini. They were finally defeated in 1260. Marostica was a Venetian city until Venice jointed Italy. During the 19th century it was mainly a relatively poor town; a great number of inhabitants went to look for fortune in Brasil and many other places in the world. The wealth of the town grew greatly after the second world war.Marostica is famous all over the world for the human chess game it carries out every other year, with living chess pieces, in the city public square.
