Both my maternal grandmother and grandfather are from Udine. Louis (Luigi) Sabbadini was born in 1920 in Udine and emigrated to the United States sometime before WWII. A few of his brothers stayed behind in Udine, one of them was named Joseppi. My grandfather's mother was Ada Sabbadini, also from Udine.
My maternal grandmother was born in the US, but her father and mother, Querico and Valeria Ziraldo, lived in Udine until shortly after WWI, when they emigrated with their firstborn, Leonard, to the United States.
I'd love to be put in contact with anyone who might be a distant relation. Also, I'm very much interested in learning Friuli. Any ideas how I might go about that, apart from moving to Udine? I'd like to learn the language, then visit in Udine to conduct some historical research.
i would like to come to Udine with my friends on 17th of July for a concert of Bon Jovie. All Hotels are booked and we don't know what to do!!! :(

My husband and I are planning to explore Friuli as part of our Italy trip in the fall. We would like to rent an apartment in Udine for a week, which we think looks like the best place to base and do day trips. We've explored all the web options we can find but we cannot find any source for vacation rentals in Udine. We would appreciate any information you could offer.
Sono Irlandese e studieró a Udine, per l'anno erasmus, in settembre!! What I want to know is basically if you know any websites I could go on to get accommodation etc. I was also wondering because there is no airport in Udine, is it best to fly to Trieste or to Verona??!
Any information will be helpful

My husbands father and family were from Udine, Italy. I am having trouble finding much information on this area. Is Udine a region or a city, some information I've found make it sound like a region.
Is Udine on the Austrian border? Also, I found some information stating that the language Friulian is not an Italian dialect, is this correct? If so, what is it considered a mix of Austrian and Italian mixed because of being near the border of Austria? Are there any websites with pictures of Udine and/or surrounding areas?
Sorry for so many questions, my husbands father passed away a few years ago and all we really knew was that Udine was in Northern Italy and the dialect was Friulian. We are planning to go to Italy within the next couple of years and would like to visit there, can you get by with speaking only english?
Also if anyone who responds is from Udine the family name we are looking for is Narduzzi.
Thank you so much for any help.
My husband and I are visiting friends in Heidelberg in a few weeks and are hoping to travel to Italy for a few days. I would like to visit Udine, as it is where my grandparents were born, but I don't know of any extended family still there, so we don't have any local contacts. Any information anyone has will be really helpful, such as where to stay, etc. Also, I know a little bit of "travel" Italian, but no Friulan, so will it be difficult to communicate while there? Thanks for any input you might have.
Hello, my name is Zoraida Banks and I am from Puerto Rico. I am writting in this post out of nostalgia because my whole island is sad from the death of our dear Tony Croatto, a singer and composer that lived in this island nation for about 30 yrs. He loved the island as soon as he saw it and stay and contributed wonders to the music of Puerto Rico rediscovering it and making us look to our values as a nation. He borned in Udine, in Attima, and during second world war his family moved to Uruguay and Argentine as many Europeans did. So when they were youngsters him and his siblings made a pop group named TNT, his brother Edelweiss Croatto is in Italy producing in the media. But he got to be one of the top in PR when he moved around the 60's, Now from the Nostalgia I write for such a loss and next year I would love to travel to the land that saw him born, eventhough he said that if he was Porto rican from the heart even if he was born in the moon. I would love to go to Attima, the town in Udine that he borned, so please tell me how to get there and what attractions are there to see. thanks to all and viva tony croatto

Hello! I've been told that the people and culture of Udine is very different from the people and culture of Southern Italy, that the Udinese are a little colder, more industrialised, and a little less friendly towards foreigners, especially non-Italians. Im going there soon and am wondering how the people and the culture of udine are like?
