Weddings in Friuli Venezia Giulia
Your Italian wedding where Central & Mediterranean Europe meets.
Friuli-Venezia Giulia is an autonomous region of north-eastern Italy. Bordering Austria and Slovenia, Friuli Venezia Giulia is at the crossing center of the Latin, German and Slavic cultures: : a region with much to offer for an unforgettable Italian Wedding. In the North there are the Alps, while the territory along the coasts is mostly plain. Between Trieste and the Alps there is a wide, Karst plateau, the Carso, an important battlefield in First World War, where innumerable Italian and Austrian soldiers lost their lives.
The last Doge of Venice, Ludovico Manin, retired to this area at the end of the eighteenth century when the Venetian Republic fell to the blows of Napoleon Bonaparte. These days, whoever visits Villa Manin in the province of Udine, detects a hint of twilight in the air, almost as if the memory of the old gentleman who came here to pass the autumn of his life was influencing the visitors and inducing a melancholic mood in them. But this is a pleasant sensation, that leads to a more intimate and intense kind of aesthetic enjoyment.
The same sensation recurs all over this beautiful and severe border region, where almost every town boasts a museum: Udine, Tolmezzo, Pordenone, Cividale del Friuli, Gorizia, andAquileia are particularly important and interesting and it is highly recomended to plan a visits in all of these towns. Friuli Venezia Giulia is able to surprise with the plurality of architectural styles - in the centre of Udine the Venetian Gothic of the Palazzo del Comune faces the beautiful twentieth-century Art Deco Caffè Contarena - and cultural attractions. Highly suggestive is the Basilica in Aquileia, now a small town but once an important city of the Roman Empire.
