As usual, I got something about Nove, Italy...courtesy of Wikipedia..thanks Wiki!!

Nove is a town and comune in the province of Vicenza in the region of Veneto, north-eastern Italy, with c. 5,000 inhabitants. It is located on the Brenta river, near Marostica and Bassano del Grappa.

The town is home of a local network of ceramic industries.

The name of the town comes from the antique Italian nove, in the meaning of "new". As matter of fact, the lands where the town is located where considered new because of the lowering of the level of the Brenta. The lowering of the river revealed soft lands rich of clay. The first artisans of the area started using the clay for the production of pottery.
