Godega di Sant'Urbano

Description

A town in the province of Treviso, located in a flat plain near the Dolomites. Although the discovery of archaeological finds attest the presence of settlements in the area since ancient times, the name takes its origins from the Goth invasion in the V century AD. The old town centre was built, in the XIII century, around what was called "the Pit of the Rule", The Rule, in fact, was an assembly composed by the oldest person (at least 25 years old) of each households, which met periodically to vote on issues of administrative nature, utility and public safety. The first signs of development and organization were recorded from the year 1000, in conjunction with the reclamation of marshy ground by the monks of the Abbey and the arrival of farm settlers from Bavaria. The trading market of Godega was already famous in medieval times. Until 1420, being part of the Podesta of Sacile, the town depended administratively to Friuli Venezia Giulia, until it passed to the Serenissima Republic of Venice. In 1867 it was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy.
