Farra di Soligo

Description

The first part of the town's name derives from the Lombard word "fara" (dispatch), while the second part was added in the second half of the XIX century and is the name of a nearby district and a river that runs through the area, whose name comes from the Latin person's name Solius or Sulla.
Municipality in the province of Treviso, at the foot of a chain of hills, in a flat area washed by the river Soligo, the city's economy is based on agriculture, mainly to the cultivation of vines, which produce a very good Prosecco.
The discovery of relics from the Neolithic Ages attest the presence of prehistoric settlements in the area. There are also several traces of Roman colonization: in addition to the remains of tombs, in the nearby passes the Via Claudia Augusta Altinate. After the Fall of the Roman Empire, the area was overwhelmed by the Lombards, who in 568 A.D., under the guidance of Alboino, crossed the Julian Alps. Between the XII and XIV centuries the fief was granted to the Caminesi and to the Collalto. Without submitting major damage from the attacks of the troops led by Ezzelino Romano, the castle was badly damaged by order of Treviso, in 1319, in retaliation against Guecello Da Camino, who had granted to the Dalla Scala, the domain of Soligo and other castles in the area. During the first half of the XV century the town was attacked and plundered by the Hungarian troops. It then submitted the domain of the Serenissima Republic of Venice until the advent of Napoleon in the XVI century.
