Villa Vicentina

Description

The town's name, which was originally Camarcio, derives from the presence, in the XV century of a residence, that belonged to the noble family of Gorgo of Vicenza. It is a municipality in the province of Udine, located in Lower Friuli.
Traces and important finds, excavated in the area, evidence that in the II century B.C., after the foundation of Aquileia, the Romans built a settlement and established here.

The village was mentioned in a historical text for the first time in 1211 with its original name Camarcio and register the reclamation of the lands from the marshes. In the XV century the region submitted the invasions of the Turks, until in 1466, the Gorgo Family from Vicenza Gorgo took over the rule, accompanied by several settlers. Barricades and fortifications were built and due to the presence of these Vicentini, the town assumed its present name. In the XVI century, Villa Vicentina was subjected to Austria, except for the Napoleonic period. Subsequently, the town was assigned to the Kingdom of Italy.
