TRENTO, ART AND CULTURE IN TRENTINO

written by Eva Rice

Ostuni città bianca

Trento is an Italian city and the capital of Trentino. It is located along the lines of the Adige River valley and it was the centre of attention in the 16th century when Council of Trento was taking place.  

Today Trento is a modern city, a more of a political centre with educational, financial and scientific values. Its university ranks highly among Italy’s top colleges. The city contains pieces from the Renaissance and Medieval history with a variety of ancient buildings. The population of the city is around 120000 people. 

Trento is a modern cosmopolitan city and one of the most expensive towns in Italy. Its wealth comes mainly from wine, farming and other industries. It should be noticed that at the Easter the city is full of apple blossoms. 

The city centre can be explored by foot or by a bicycle as this is the best way to see the frescos on the historic buildings. 

Another historical event is connected to the city of Treny and Judaism. A plaquette that you will find in a little alley tells the story of Simione a boy that died about 500 years ago. The killing was blamed on the Jews, so it was ordered for all Jewish men to be killed except children and women. Today the relations between Jewish people and Trento have been improved but the plaquette is still there to tell the story. The center is located away from traffic junction so you can do a relaxing walk. 

The areas and the mountains that surround Trento can be easily reached by the blue buses that you can find at the bus station between the train station and the hostel. There are more than 20 bus lines that operated and can take you to any surrounding valleys around Trento. 

The magnificent surroundings are known for the mountain landscapes, and are the destination of tourist throughout any month of the year. Very interesting sightseeing should include the Piazza Duomo which is the heart of the old town and the square with the Cathedral and the Fountain of Neptune. 

Following, you should visit the Duomo di Trento, a Cathedral with the excellent properties from the Romanesque architecture and the rose window with the Wheel of Fortune. Just for your info, the Cathedral contains the tomb of Roberto Sanseverino, a Renaissance condottiero. 

One sight that would wake all the historic memories would be the Castello Del Buonconsiglio. This is a castle which was serving as a residence of the local bishops. It includes the Torre Aquila and the painting of the Cycle of the Months from the 15th century.

Another piece of Renaissance history is the Chiesa di Santa Maria Maggiore, a church that held events of the Ecumenical Council in the 16th century. 

Be sure not to miss the Trentino museum of natural sciences and the Palaces that are spread around the city centre.
