Trentino Alto Adige is the Northernmost region of Italy and the most sparsely populated.
It borders East and South to Veneto, West to Lombardy, North to Austria and Switzerland.
Two provinces: Trento, the capital region, and Bolzano.
Cities and major resorts of Trentino are: Trento, Bolzano, rich in history and cultural crossroads, Bressanone and Vipiteno, with their traditional Christmas markets, Rovereto, home of MART, Museum of Contemporary Art, Madonna di Campiglio and Ortisei, famous ski resorts.
Trento, the capital, is famous for having hosted the first Catholic Council. Buonconsiglio Castle is overlooking the city and it is home to exhibitions and events.
Rovereto has been the scene of bloody battles during the First World War. The MART is one of the most important contemporary art museums in Europe, with paintings of De Chirico, Balla, Morandi, Fontana and Warhol.
The Historical War Museum exhibits a large collection of documents and artifacts dating back to the First World War.
Bolzano is surrounded by mountains and immersed in the atmosphere of Tyrol. Its historic center is very impressive, dominated by the Gothic Cathedral. In the Civic Museum it is possible to see OTSI, the oldest mummy ever found.
