Portogruaro is a town and comune in the province of Venice, Veneto, northern Italy.HistoryPortogruaro was officially founded in 1140, when the Archbishop of Concordia, Gervinus, gave a group of fishermen the right to settle there and build a river port. A castle had existed on the site as early as the 10th century. In 1420 its citizens requested membership of the Republic of Venice. Under the Venetians the town retained some autonomy and was able to expand economically up until the economic decline of Venice from the 17th century onwards.Following the upheavals of the Napoleonic Wars, Portogruaro was incorporated into the Austrian Empire in 1815. Apart from a brief uprising in 1848 Portogruaro remained under Austrian control until 1866 when it entered the newly unified Kingdom of Italy.
