Touristic guide and map of MANIAGO, the town of the Knife Makers
(Europe – Italia – Friuli Venezia Giulia region – province of Pordenone - Homogeneous Zone of Maniago and the Valcellina)
  Maniago since 1000 a.C. is one of the world capitals in the production of blades for every use, from the household ones to the industrial ones, from the kitchen knife to the blades of turbine engines.
  The particular productive specialization of the town is explained in the fine ‘Museo dell’arte fabbrile e delle coltellerie’ (Museum of the forging art and of the cutlery factories), rich of historical reconstructions and technological informations, and remembered also by the unique iron beater water mill still today working (to visit call Municipal Hall tel.0427-730019).

Historical buildings

  Very nice the great square ‘Italia’ in the centre of the town: monumental octagonal fountain with staircases, palace Attimis and the near neoclassical ‘Immacolata concezione’ little church, public Open gallery, Theatre.
  At South of this square opens, with stone gateways, the picturesque square of the romanesque Duomo of 1400, which hosts several art works

  In the eastern part of the historical centre, in direction of the Valcolvera, to see the restored building o fan old spinning mill.

  To visit the little village of Maniago Libero, standing at West of the centre and where you can see (around the Ss.Vito, Modesto, Crescenzia church of 1700) about ten very nice old stone houses with characteristic arches, open galleries and front gates, variously placed.

The Environment and the Nature

  At North, upon the hill, beautiful view from the ruins of the castle, among which the restored S.Giacomo chapel of 1200.

  At South-West, on the old road in direction of Pordenone, we advise to cross the large bed of the Cellina river upon the iron bridge ‘del Giulio’ that allows to watch from close up one of more interesting erosive phenomenons of the region.


The Museum of the forging art and of the cutlery factories

  The Museum, which synthetizes the spirit and the energy of the town, has now the new seat in the ex cutlery factory Coricama, with an updated mounting.
