Capriva del Friuli Wikipedia
The municipality is located in the hilly Collio region, noted for viticulture.
The area was occupied in Roman times, after which it was subsumed into Lombardy. Around the year 1000, it came under the control of the Patriarchate of Aquileia, passing to the Venetians in 1428.
In the sixteenth century Capriva became part of the Habsburg territories, and continued to be ruled from Vienna until after the First World War, when it was transferred to Italy.
