TAGLIAMENTO RIVER

bootstrap responsive templates

The Tagliamento River, anciently named Tiliaventum, is the synthesis of all the characteristics of this regional hydrographic scenario. The Tagliamento Springs are in the Carniche Alps under the Mauria Pass and then they cross the flat lands and divide into several streams, losing some of their water volume in the process called percolation. Then they enter into an area of rising waters near Casarsa, and afterwards flow through the city of Latisana, and later flow directly into the Adriatic Sea, between the Marano and Caorle lagoons.

In ancient times, the lower part of this river, was presumed to be different from the actual stream. As it was reported by Plinio IL Vecchio in the 1st century AD, he described the river as being divided into two branches (Tiliaventum Maius Minusque). Recent discoveries confirm that a branch of the river was drained due to the consolidation of the water flow in the left branch. However, the Tiliaventum Maius branch (the right branch), disappeared little by little in the past ages.
