municipality of Maniago
In the sunlight gleam the cutting blades forged by the skilful hands of blacksmiths who until the end of the Middle Ages made arms for the troops of the Serenissima. Now there is modern technology in the place of bellows and fire, but Maniago undoubtedly remains the capital of the knife and accessories for the kitchen. From these workshops came the sabres of Braveheart. Dominating the square is the rampant lion of St. Mark painted by Amalteo on Palazzo d'Attimis.
