Cividale del Friuli is a city in Region name.

Understand

Cividale del Friuli is a small jewel in the far north-eastern corner of Italy. Traditional histories say that it was founded by Julius Caesar, who gave the town its first recorded name: Forum Iulii (which has now become the name of Cividale's region, Friuli). Archeologists, however, have found remains of older Celtic settlements. In the Dark Ages, Cividale later become a capital of the Lombard invaders, the last barbarians to move into Italy (before today's tourists, of course). The town now celebrates its Lombard (or Longobard) heritage. Before 1000 AD, the town was known as "Civitas" (City) or "Civitas austriae", the Austrian city. Cividale was the seat of the Patriarch of Aquilea (as that Roman capital had been destroyed by Huns) until the 1200s, when the Patriarchs moved to Udine.
