Iron Maiden will play an exclusive 2010 Italian show at the historic Villa Manin nr Udine as part of their Final Frontier World Tour on Aug 17.
The majestic ensemble of Villa Manin, located in Codroipo in the province of Udine, is one of the most important artistic Italian monuments. Commissioned in the 17th century by Ludovico Manin to celebrate the wealth and power of the Manin family, it was the family's country house. At the end of the 18th century, under the reign of the last doge of Venice, Ludovico Manin (1789-1898), Napoleon Bonaparte chose this regal residence as the General Headquarters of the French troops stationed here in 1797 during the Italian campaign. The new order he was later to impose on the whole of Europe was planned here. It was in the rooms of the Doge's residence that the important negotiations which were to culminate in the "Treaty of Campoformido" (October 17, 1797) were held, thus marking the end of the Republic of Venice to the benefit of the Hapsburg Empire. What a perfect location for Maiden's triumphant return to Italy in their first show there since Bologna in 2008!
