Campoformido (Friulian: Cjampfuarmit) is a town and comune in the province of Udine, in north-eastern Italy, notable for the Treaty of Campo Formio.

History[edit]

Campoformido is a village not far from Udine. It is known for the 1797 Treaty of Campo Formio signed between Napoleonic France and Austria. The treaty enacted the dissolution of the Republic of Venice.

Today It is possibile make a visit to the house in which the treaty was signed. The house was property of Bertrando Del Torre, a merchant. Two inscriptions remember the history of the signature.
