CIVIDALE DEL FRIULI
The center of Cividale del Friuli is formed by the wide square on which the Duomo stands, the site of the ancient Roman Forum (Forum Iulii from which the name Friuli is derived). It was rebuilt in its present form by Pietro Lombardo commencing 1457. The cathedral has a very simple facade with three naves. At the altars there are paintings by Palma il Giovanni, Pomponio Amalteo, Caspare Diziani and Pordenone. The Treasury is now a museum which contains several rather important pieces, namely l'Ara di Ratchis, an altar; the Battistero di Callisto, a baptistery from the 8th Century; the Cattedra Marmorea (a marble chair) from the 10th Century. There are also many pieces in marble from other churches, tabernacles, parapets, Lombard reliquaries and works in both silver and gold as well as the sword belonging to the patriarch Marquard. Cividale also hosts the Christian Museum which houses some of the best examples of medievel sculpture particularly from the Lombard period. Near the cathedral is the Palazzo dei Provveditori Veneti built by Palladio in the mid-16th Century. The palace houses the National Archaeological Museum and an extraordinary collection of weapons, jewelery and documents from the Lombard civilization. Opposite is the Palazzo De Nordis. From the Piazza Duomo you can get to the Ponte del Diavolo or Devil's Bridge, first built in the 15th Century and rebuilt several times thereafter, which has a marvellous view of the Natisone.
