In Veneto, even the landscape, half nature and half framework, lives and is seen to live, and is pleased with itself, wrote Guido Piovene in his 1957 ``Viaggio in Italia``
Sensations probably similar to those who experienced noble travelers such as De Brosses and Goethe who, during the Grand Tour of Italy in the 1800s, used to go undisturbed to the crossing inns, to enjoy the flavors of the local cuisine and rest their tired bodies, admiring the harmony of the landscape. The Osteria-restaurant “Al Glorioso Piave” in Salettuol (Maserada sul Piave), has been known for over 100 years as a “cozy and pleasant place to rest”, close to the Piave river, the so-called sacred River of the Homeland. Not far from the restaurant you can find the memorial stones that honor the sacrifice of Italian and English artillerymen during the Great War. This characteristic Venetian restaurant represents an extraordinary and still vivid proof of the Venetian tradition, which finds one of its greatest expressions in the typical local cuisine.
The inn is situated in the lands of the Piave, where the bitter battles that characterized the First World War were fought, of which this year marks the centenary. These places constitute a suggestive testimony of the past.
