Concordia Sagittaria was originally a Roman colony founded on the right bank of the River Lemene in 42 or 40 B.C. with the name Iulia Concordia.
Two of the most important Roman roads, Via Annia and Via Postumia, met in Concordia and then continued as one route to nearby Aquileia. The city enjoyed considerable prosperity in the early centuries of the Roman empire. In the 3rd century A.D., an arrow factory was built here - arrow in Latin is sagittae, which gave the city its name Sagittaria last century.
Concordia Sagittaria is practically the suburb of Portogruaro, the town which is situated in Region of Veneto.
