Cison di Valmarino

Description

Municipality in the province of Treviso, located in Valmareno, washed by the river Soligo, from Vittorio Veneto to Follina, the village is situated on the border with the province of Belluno. It stands out between the environment of the countryside and is crossed by the stream Rujo, which creates several extraordinary and picturesque corners.
Findings from the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Bronze Ages, evidence the presence of settlements since ancient times. After the Roman colonization, the area was invaded by Barbarians and later submitted the domain of the Lombards, who founded the first permanent settlements. The fief was assigned to the Bishops of Ceneda and submitted their domain between the VI to XI centuries and subsequently it became part of the lands granted to the Counts of Porcia and the Caminesi. In the first half of the XIV century, the lands were granted to the Bishops, until it was assigned to the Serenissima Republic of Venice. In 1436 the lands were entrusted by the Doge of Venice to Erasmo da Narni, also known as the Gattamelata, and Brandolino of Bagnacavallo, to pay them back for the services rendered to Venice. Gattamelata renounced to his rights in favor of Brandolino, who, with his descendants, ruled the valley until the advent of Napoleon. The town became a French and Austrian possession, until its annexation to the Kingdom of Italy.
