Region of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia

Friuli–Venezia Giulia (Friulian: Friûl–Vignesie Julie, Slovene: Furlanija–Julijska krajina, German: Friaul–Julisch Venetien) is one of the 20 regions of Italy, and one of five autonomous regions with special statute. The capital is Trieste. It has an area of 7,858 km² and about 1.2 million inhabitants. A natural opening to the sea for many Central European countries, the region is traversed by the major transport routes between the east and west of southern Europe. It encompasses the historical-geographical region of Friuli and a small portion of the historical region of Venezia Giulia (known in English also as Julian March), each with its own distinct history, traditions and identity. The name of the region was spelled Friuli–Venezia Giulia until 2001 in connection with a modification of article nr. 116 of the Italian constitution, the official spelling Friuli Venezia Giulia was adopted.[1]

Provinces (Province)

Friuli-Venezia-Giulia consists of four geographic provinces called enti di decentramento regionale (EDR). However, administratively the region is subdivided into 18 unioni territoriali intercomunali (UTI; "inter-comune unions"), a type of administrative unit unique to the region.[2]
