History[edit]

The first traces of human settlement date back to the 4th and 3rd centuries BC, when the area (now part of the municipality of San Michele al Tagliamento) was populated by the Adriatic Veneti.

From 181 AC onward, the Romans' colonization marked the beginning of the land reclamation and agricultural development of the entire area. Since the end of the 18th century, archaeological excavations have led to the discovery of black and white mosaic floors, copper coins, glass fragments and pottery, which can be traced back to the Roman imperial period.
