Salgareda

Description

The town's name derives from the word "salghèr" ("willow", a very common plant in the area).
Municipality in the province of Treviso, on the border with the Venice area and within walking distance from the river Piave, the inhabitants of Salgareda are devoted to agricultural activities, favored by the presence of several rivers.
Finds from the Neolithic period evidence that the area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The Roman colonization split the farmlands into centuries and had built an efficient road network. With the fall of the Roman Empire and the lack of political leadership and looting perpetrated by the barbarian hordes, the progress, obtained so far, went lost. Only centuries later, the Benedictines helped the town of Salgareda to regain, through land reclamation and the spread of culture. The territory belonged to Ezzelini and was directly involved in the events that saw the inhabitants protagonists between the XI and the XIII centuries and later in the first half of the XIV century under the domain of the Della Scala. The XVIII century was a century that put a strain on the town's growth, impoverished by the flooding of the nearby Piave and other catastrophic natural events. At the end of the XVIII century, conquered by the Hapsburg Empire, it was scenario, in 1917 of a battle between Italian and Austrian troops, entrenched along the riverside.
