Manzoni Luigi

Manzoni Luigi The Italian agronomist, researcher and politician Professor Luigi Manzoni (1888-1968) studied agricultural sciences at the University of Pisa (in Tuscany). He was deeply involved in research on the morphology of the vine and the water balance of plants. Manzoni was subsequently for many years director of the Conegliano Viticulture Research Institute in the Italian region of Veneto.

There he created some new breeds from the mid-1920s onwards. The best known are Augusta (Incrocio Manzoni 3.25), Incrocio Manzoni 2.15 (Manzoni Nero), Manzoni Bianco (Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13), Manzoni Moscato (Incrocio Manzoni 13.0.25), and Manzoni Rosa (Incrocio Manzoni 1.50). From 1946 to 1949 he was also mayor of Conegliano, where a street is named after him. Manzoni published over 70 publications.
