This is a somewhat dated but quite detailed map of the area of Northern Italy where the Cattarin family originates, and which is home to the largest concentration of Cattarins.   Treviso is about 25 km (15 miles) north of Venice.  My chain of the family traces back to Lovadina (circled).  Other arms of the family trace back to Breda di Piave (northeast of Treviso, southeast of Lovadina) and Pero (south-southeast of Breda).  I have long wondered why there is such a tight concentration of roads to the west-northwest of Lovadina, west of Nervesa.  Can anyone local to the area explain this?
