Torri di Quartesolo is a town and comune in the province of Vicenza, Veneto, Italy.

Geography[edit]

It is north of E70 and west of A31, and has its own highway junction called "Vicenza Est", off the Autostrada A4.

Notable residents[edit]

The frazione of Marola is notable as the home of the Blessed Eurosia Fabris, and the place where she is buried.[citation needed]

Economy[edit]

The airline MyAir, now no longer operating, used to have its head office in Torri di Quartesolo.[1]

Torri di Quartesolo has become an important commercial hub in recent years, thanks to the opening in the 1990s of the shopping mall "Le Piramidi", which attracts shoppers from as far as 30 miles away and has spurred a remarkable residential and commercial development.
