Description

The town's name honors King Vittorio Emanuele II. Municipality in the province of Treviso, located in the valley of the river Meschio, at the foot of the Pre-Alps, the town of Vittorio Veneto extends between Treviso and Belluno and offers several interesting features: hills and mountains, lakes and rivers . It is a charming centre, which well preserves ruins of the ancient past, several beautiful residences with arcades, enriched with mullioned windows, and churches embellished by valuable artworks. The local economy is based on trade, industrial and tourism activities.
The Romans chose this site, because strategically protected by the massif chain of Monte Cucco and Marcatone, and built a stronghold. After the fall of the Empire, the defensive function of this area is highlighted for its resistance against the invasion of Barbarian tribes. In the period of Lombard domain it was proclaimed a Bishop administrative seat, while in the XIV century, under the rule of the Venetian Republic, it flourished into an important commercial and manufacturing center. The town was founded from the union, in 1866, with the town of Ceneda, located to the South, partly hilly and partly on the plain, and with the town of Serravalle, to the North.
