On 29 November 1929, named after King Vittorio Emanuele III, was inaugurated the new psychiatric Hospital in Rovigo.

On 20 March were received the first tranches of male patients from the asylum of St. Servolo in Venice, and two days later came the sick "banked" in Noventa Vicentina, while simultaneously beginning the service was first provincial agreement.The Institute could well activate fully, accepting and withdrawing patients also scattered in other places like hospitals and nursing until then unexpended for that purpose so that the June 1, 1930 are 350 units were received, of which 199 men and 131 women.

Since then and for 50 years, until 1980, the Psychiatric Hospital of Rovigo acquitted the function of shelter and care for the entire province of Rovigo, welcoming thousands of patients, the specific task of total institution, which was a deputy under psychiatric law then in force.
