Valvasone Arzene is a comune in the Province of Pordenone in the Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia, located about 80km northwest of Trieste and about 15km east of Pordenone. It was formed on 1 January 2015 after the merger of the previous comuni of Valvasone and Arzene.Valvasone is listed in the most beautiful villages in Italy.HistoryThe first information about the castle of Valvasone tells how in the 1218 the original manor-house was kept by Ulvino and Bonfante for the Patriarch of Aquileia. These were the founders of the first feudal family, but in 1268 this family was killed because of the rebellion of Corrado from Valvasone. The side of the Tagliamento River, which flows near the town, was very important indeed, to let it without any form of control. That's the reason why the Patriarch assigned Walterpertoldo from Spilimbergo to control the area. In 1273 he did a great restoration to the buildings near the river, in order to effect the best form of control against the foreigners. These works, however, did not modify the structure of the town, that has the castle in its centre and the other buildings are situated just around it. When Walterpertoldo died, and the first generation of the Spilimbergo ended, a huge fight for the succession in controlling Valvasone begins between two really important families in the area: the Zuccola and the Cucagna. In 1292 the Patriarch Raimondo della Torre gave to Simone di Cucagna the power to control Valvasone and its surroundings: that's the beginning of the second genealogy of feudal overlords of Valvasone.
