Pordenone is a beautiful town located in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, and is one of the most important cities in the region. The tour that is proposed to us in the video starts from the river behind the Church of SS. Trinity, it is from here that the city was built and expanded over time; important is the Adam and Eve Bridge, the connection point of the city to the historic center. Initially this bridge was built in wood, then it was reinforced in stone becoming one of the symbols of the city, especially because the river that passes under it has been navigable since ancient times, boats had to pay taxes to be able to cross it and this did so that the city could grow. The Town Hall has structural characteristics typical of Austrian culture, thus testifying their presence between 1200 and 1500. The beating heart of the city is Piazza San Marco where the church dedicated to San Marco is located, in Venetian style. The Campanile di San Marco is 70 meters high and is one of the most beautiful in Italy. Later we can admire Palazzo Pittini, with a wonderful Gothic facade, after which the tour continues along Corso Vittorio Emanuele along which the most important and historic buildings of the city are concentrated, such as Palazzo Gregoris, which has typical elements of Venetian architecture. The city has strongly developed in the textile field and has also become a reference in the household appliances sector. It is one of the fifteen Italian cities where the quality of life is better. There is no shortage of buildings with contemporary architecture such as the Teatro Comunale Giuseppe Verdi, a reinterpretation of the ancient theater. Being in a pre-plane area, there is no shortage of spaces to immerse yourself in nature, such as parks and rivers.
