History[edit]

The town was founded in Roman times and named Quadruvium. It shared its history with that of Friuli in general and was part of the Republic of Venice. In 1797 the Treaty of Campoformio was signed in a nearby villa owned by Ludovico Manin, marking Napoleon Bonaparte's victory, the fall of the First Coalition, and the cession of Friuli to Austria.

In the final days of World War I, it was occupied by the 332nd Infantry Regiment, the only American military unit in the Italian theater.
