BETWEEN THE CASTLES - A TRIP WITH ONE CLICK (3): FROM UDINE TO VILLALTA

06/04/2020

In this third video of gorizia3.0 made by Antonio Devetag here are the magnificent Friulian castles of the morainic amphitheatre around Udine. And it is from the metropolis of Friuli that we leave for a tour of the manors in which the fascinating history of our territories is inscribed. From the terrible Shrove Thursday that in 1511 saw the factions of the Zamberlani and Strumieri, the friends of the Serenissima opposing those of the Habsburgs, face each other. A story that bloodied Friuli and that had as protagonists the Savorgnan nobles against the Della Torre family. But you will also see, passing through the magnificent San Daniele, the castles of Cassacco, Moruzzo, Susans, to get to that incredible archetype of a medieval castle that is the manor of Villalta, where the gloomy events of one of the most controversial characters of the Friulian eighteenth century will be told: the noble and wild Lucio Della Torre, executed in the first half of the eighteenth century by the sadly famous "Hangman of Ljubljana" after being arrested together with his cousin in Farra d'Isonzo.
