Oderzo

Description

The town's name derives from the Latin "Opitergium" (Market Square). Municipality in the province of Treviso, located on the river Monticano, in an area almost totally flat, Oderzo is washed by several rivers, some natural, others artificial, this has made the soil extremely fertile, so that today it is a center devoted mainly to agriculture and industrial activities.
Of Paleovenitian origins, the first settlement raised in the XI century B.C. for its particular location between the sea and the mountains of Cansiglio and the presence of water courses. The area was colonized by the Romans and assumed considerable importance, becoming Municipium; it declined as a result of the dispersion of the Roman Empire and the devastation brought by the Barbarians. The town experienced a period of gradual recovery after the year 1000, becoming a centre ruled by several powerful local families. From the second half of the XIV century until the Napoleonic conquest, it became part of the dominion of Venice and later became part of the Habsburg Empire and only in 1866 was submitted to the Kingdom of Italy. During the First World War Oderzo suffered significant damage and was also directly involved in the events of World War II.
