Palazzo d'Attimis Maniago History
The acquisition, transformation and completion of the villa in its present form took place between 1513 and 1750. In fact, already from the divisions of 1448 between the Consorti of Maniago, it appears that Federico and his son Giovanni Antonio owned a house "outside del castello ”so that the existence of a house outside the castle walls can be traced back to around 1428. This house was enlarged by them with purchases of neighboring properties. These acquisitions and transformations had become necessary to repair the serious damage following the earthquakes of 1511 and the even more disastrous one of 1575, which seriously damaged the castle and part of the country. On the facade of the north body of the palace, which can be considered the oldest, the well-known painter Pomponio Amalteo frescoed the Lion of San Marco around 1550, which holds the coat of arms of the Maniago family under his paw.
The definitive current arrangement and embellishment of the building complex took place by Fabio I of Maniago in the early 18th century on the occasion of his marriage to the Countess Caterina of the family of the Counts of Spilimbergo.
From the documents of the archive of the accounts of Attimis Maniago, it is possible to follow the transformation phases of the complex: the central part is reorganized, the staircase and the roof of the portico are built, in addition to the cedar and the barn. In addition, the work of the Italian garden is done.
