Palù di Livenza, which features on the UNESCO World Heritage list, is one of the oldest dwelling sites in northern Italy. It is part of 18 Prehistoric Pile Dwellings in the area of Piemonte, Lombardia, Veneto and Trentino. Palù di Livenza is a swampy area of the Livenza River, located between the towns of Caneva and Polcenigo in the province of Pordenone.
The place is known for its outstanding natural beauty, a home to several animal and plant species. It has been inhabited since the Paleolithic, however archaeological finds testify to a pile-dwelling settlement until the late Neolithic. Housed at the Archaeological Museum of Western Friuli (Museo Archeologico del Friuli Occidentale) are several items that were found here (stone and ceramic objects, tools).
