polcenigo

ProseccoPolcenigo is the village of the "poucelle de Blois", whose famed beauty was even celebrated by poets. Historically speaking, it should be clarified that this young girl really did exist and became the wife of Robert of Sacile, although in the Upper Livenza district she is and always will be the patron of Polcenigo.

This characteristic town, just a short distance from the Holiday Farmhouse, is conspicuous for its castle, which occupies a prominent position. It was originally an enclosed wooden fortress that was used by a military detachment.

Over the course of hundreds of years the stronghold was first converted into a castle and then into a villa. As you walk along its splendid streets you will be able to admire Palazzo Fullini-Zaia, Palazzo Zaro and Palazzo Scolari. Palazzo Fullini is famous for having given lodging to Prince Eugene de Beauharnais, Napoleon Bonaparte's adopted son, on the night before the battle of Camolli (16 April 1809) in which the French were defeated by the Austrians.

It is well worth visiting the Museo dell'Arte Cucinaria, a museum dedicated to the culinary art, which traces the careers of chefs who were born in the Upper Livenza area and the history of the restaurants they worked in, especially those abroad.

Letters, photographs and various exhibits are on display bearing witness to this curious type of emigration, which is a peculiar local feature and which is remembered each year on 13 October in the festival of the chef.
