Located at the intersection of important trade routes, legend says that Moimacco was funded by an officer of the Roman army named Mommeius (or Mumius). Since its origins the economy of the village was tied to the neighboring center of Cividale.
Today, Moimacco's industrial district provides jobs for workers commuting from close by cities. A few small farms are present as well.
Places of interest are the churches of S. Maria Assunta, San Giovanni and San Donato, the noble villas De Claricini and De Puppi, with splendid gardens and art collections.
Frico is a cheese and potatoes, or sometimes only cheese, pan fried pie. Other local products include salami and the cheese Montasio.
