Manzano is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Udine in the Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia. It is chiefly known for Rosazzo Abbey, a well preserved medieval monastery complex.GeographySituated in the eastern hills of the historic Friuli region on the Natisone river, Manzano is located about 50km northwest of Trieste and about 15km southeast of Udine. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 6,845 and an area of 30.9km2.The municipality of Manzano contains the frazioni (subdivisions, mainly villages and hamlets) Manzinello, Oleis, Rosazzo, San Lorenzo, San Nicolò, and Soleschiano.Manzano borders the following municipalities: Buttrio, Corno di Rosazzo, Pavia di Udine, Premariacco, San Giovanni al Natisone, and Trivignano Udinese.HistoryAccording to legend, a first chapel at Rosazzo was built about 800 by a hermit called Alemanno. A convent of Augustinian canons (monasterium rosarum) was probably established around 960, when the area became part of the Imperial March of Verona. The monastery church dedicated to Saint Peter was consecrated in 1070; it was elevated to the rank of an abbey by the Aquileia patriarch Ulrich of Eppenstein about 1090. At the time, the premises were settled with Benedictine monks descending from Millstatt Abbey in Carinthia, where Ulrich's brother Liutold was duke.
