In the middle of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Northeast Italy between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, lies the old city of Udine. Though founded by the Celts, and possibly in existence in Roman times, it wasn't until it was part of the territory of Venice that Udine finally came to prominence. Certainly this charming town has a Venetian flavor to some of its architecture. However, it was the outstanding artist Tiepolo, who started his career there at the beginning of the 18th century, that gave rise to Udine’s proud nickname of ‘Cittá del Tiepolo’.
