In the 70s the popularity of Maratelli rice dropped in favour of new, more productive varieties, disappearing almost completely. This happened because Maratelli Rice doesen’t tolerate herbicides, but needs of pure water and natural cultivation methods only. However, Eusebio Francese and Bianca Bellotti, with insight and obstinacy, continued to cultivate Maratelli rice, typical of the Piedmontese tradition, in their paddy fields and still continue today.
Their tenacity, along with their daughters Maddalena and Isabella, was awarded by the Minister of Agriculture who registered Maratelli rice in the Italian Register of Historic Varieties of Rice.
