Italian town, near Udine. About 1600 two brothers named Luzzatto established themselves here, a descendant of one of whom was Hezekiah, the father of Samuel David Luzzatto. The enactment of 1777 renewed the right of the Jews to live in Venice, though with many obnoxious restrictions. According to a Hebrew document of the time, they were forbidden to live in the villages of the state, because of the quarrels between the native and the foreign Jews at Venice. The community of San Daniele, like many others, was subsequently dissolved, and Hezekiah Luzzatto, who was then sixteen years of age, went with his family to Triest.
