Vittorio Veneto

Vittorio Veneto

formerly  (until 1923) Vittorio,  

      town, Veneto regione, northeastern Italy, located north of Treviso. Formed in 1866 by the union of Serravalle, now the town's residential northern section, and Ceneda, the industrial southern part, it was named for Victor Emmanuel II. It was the scene in 1918 of the Italians' decisive defeat of the Austro-Hungarian army. Serravalle is an old, walled district with 16th-century houses; the cathedral (1755), with an altarpiece by Titian; and the Loggia Serravallese (1462), housing a museum with a Madonna by Andrea Sansovino, who also executed the facade of the Loggia Cenedese. Ceneda has an 18th-century cathedral and the remains of the 15th-century San Martino Castle.

      A vacation resort in the Alpine foothills, Vittorio Veneto is also a commercial and industrial centre manufacturing automobiles, motorcycles, machinery, and textiles. Pop. (2006 est.) mun., 29,229.
