Cividale is a lovely town around 15 km. from the city of Udine. It was 
founded as a Roman municipium by Julius Caesar in 50 BC with the name of 
/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:
