Conegliano

Description

On the origins, of the town's name, various theories have been developed: some attest that it derives from the Latin names "Cumelius" or "Connius", to which the suffix "-anus" has been added, with a meaning of ownership, while according to others, it comes from the Latin word "cuniculus" (underground conduit).
Municipality in the province of Treviso, located on the river Cervano, at the foot of the hill of Giano, halfway between the Alps and the plain, the town of Conegliano is a patchwork of artistic and historical styles: from Medieval to Renaissance and Baroque. It is well known for the production of fine sparkling wines and grappa.
The first settlement, like its name origins, is for certain attributed to the Romans. The colonists from Rome created here in the Pre-Alps numerous military fortifications to defend their territory. The typical defensive connotation attached to the center remained present in later periods, even during the periods of rule of: the Bishops of Belluno, the city of Treviso, the Ezzelini and the Della Scala. In the XIV century the territory was subjected to the Serenissima Republic of Venice. In the first half of the XV century it was attacked by the Hungarians, and later conquered by Napoleon's troops and subsequently became Austrian territory. In 1866 it was finally annexed to the Kingdom of Italy.
