Lendinara is a town and comune in the province of Rovigo, Veneto, northern Italy. It is part of the historical and geographical region of Polesine.

It is the birthplace of Domenico Montagnana (16801750), one of the world's finest violin and cello makers. Tenor Domenico Ronconi was also born in the town.

In the later part of the 19th century it was the home of Jessie White Mario, the English woman who took an active part in the struggle for the Unification of Italy at the side of Mazzini and Garibaldi. Outside of the town stands the Sanctuary of Nostra Signora del Pilastrello (Our Lady of the Pilaster), at the sited of a shrine built in the 16th century to house an icon of the Madonna. The abbey and church were reconstructed in the 19th century.[1]
