In discovery of historic buildings. Traces of art and history in Gemona del Friuli

“Gemona rests softly above the green slopes of the Glemina, topped by a hill picturesquely crowned by the ruins of an ancient castle, sheltered from the east wind in the vast lap of the mountains that tower above it”.

Gemona has a lively past, and this introduction from  “Gemona. Breve recensione storico descrittiva compilata per l’uso dei visitatori!” (Gemona: A brief descriptive and historical account compiled for the visitor’s use), a 1914 volume by Antonio Tessitori, invites visitors to stroll around the town and observe its history and culture as reflected in the town’s artistic heritage and the works of master sculptors, architects and painters.
