<DIV ID='layer1' style='position:static;background-color:#eeffff'><FONT COLOR='#003366'><B>Venzone <A HREF='http://www.pbase.com/pierangelo/venzone&page=all'><FONT COLOR='#FF0000'>pumpkin's festival</FONT COLOR></A></B> (Friuli-Venezia-Giulia). So carefully had this fortified town preserved its medieval appearance that it had been designated a national monument; yet in a few swift moments the entire town was razed to the ground. Venzone is worth visiting to see the painstaking efforts locals are making to restore it exactly as it had been for centuries. Pause a while to watch as, stone by stone, the 14th-century double walls, moat and gates are pieced back together.
