/Forum Iulii/ ("Julius' Forum"; Fréjus had the same Roman name).
Archaeological findings have revealed that the area was already settled
by Veneti and Celts. After the destruction of Aquileia and Iulium
Carnicum (Zuglio), it became the chief town of the district of Friuli
and gave its name to it. See Mittlefest's program:
