Udine is considered the 'historic centre' of the entire Friuli region because of its location in the heart of the territory and being situated between the Tagliamento and Isonzo Rivers. Before being placed under Venetian rule, Udine was the ancient seat of the patriarchs of Aquileia from 1238 to 1420. It is grouped around a hill on which the Castle stands. The Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie stands on the square. Rebuilt in the 18th Century by Giorgio Massari and then again restructured in the 19th Century with the addition of a neoclassical portico. Following Via Manin from the square will take you to Piazza della Libertą, Freedom Square which is the heart of the ancient city. It overlooks the Town Hall aslo know as the Loggia del Lionello after the artist who designed it. It is a magnificent Gothic-Venetian building with a large open gallery on the ground floor. The upper floors is embellished with mullioned and lancet windows. On the opposite side, elevated above the square, the colonnade of San Giovanni is topped by a clock tower. This too dates from the Renaissance period. The Castle itself, recently renovated and restored back to a museum standards after earthquake damage, was built in 1511 on existing fortifications. The new building, designed by Giovanni fontana and Giovanni da Udine, was completed in 1595. Today it houses the Civic Museum and the Gallery of Ancient History with archaeological and numismatic collections, the Gabinetto dei disegni e delle stampe (drawings and prints), a collection of jewellery, ceramics, sculptures and paintings as well a library and photographic library. The Salone del Parlamento has remarkable frescoes by Giovanni Battista Grassi and Pomponio Amaltea, allegorical paintings including the Trionfo dei Cristiani sui Turchi, (Triumph of the Christians over the Turks) by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.
