Finish Podium – Piazza Duomo, Udine
Udine is a situated in north east Italy in the centre of the Fruli-Venezia Giulia region between the Adriatic Sea and the Italian Alps. The population of Udine is approximately 178,000 people.
The centre of Udine is dominated by a castle, built by the Venetians from 1517 over a Lombard fortification ruined by an earthquake in 1511. The current Renaissance appearance dates from the intervention of Giovanni da Udine, who finished the works starting from 1547. The castle houses one of the most ancient Parliament Halls of Europe.
The Cathedral of Udine is an imposing edifice whose construction started in 1236, on a Latin cross-shaped plan with three naves and chapels along the sides. The church was consecrated in 1335 as Santa Maria Maggiore.
In the principal square, Piazza della Liberta, stands the town hall (Loggia del Lionello) built in 1448–1457 in the Venetian-Gothic style opposite a clock tower (Torre dell’Orologio) resembling that of the Piazza San Marco in Venice.
