Centrale di Fies

The hydroelectric power plant of Fies is part of the region's heritage in terms of industrial archaeology, and has become a centre for the promotion of culture.

Centrale di Fies

The Hydroelectric power plant of Fies was built at the beginning of the 20th century and is still partly operative today. Since 2002, it has become a large think-tank for theatre, cinema, and communication lovers, as well as for the performing arts in general. Its ambition is to become a landmark for contemporary culture in both the Province of Trento and in Italy, by drawing to the area the most innovative elements in the arts sector. Leading names on the theatre scene have held shows in there, which have been specifically designed for the Power Plant - ranging from poetry readings to ballet performances.
Surrounded by a highly striking landscape and located amid the Marocche landslide on the banks of River Sarca, the power plant is just a few kilometres away from Dro, and is one of the most important relicts of industrial archaeology featured by the region. Three projects are currently underway, in part as a result of its collaboration with ENEL. This, and also its residences for young artists, the establishment of a system protecting each and every step a work of art, the planning and co-planning of new artistic projects, as well as national and international performances in partnership with leading European players, in addition to events, performances, concerts and exhibitions.
The Drodesera FIES Festival has been held in the power plant for the past eight years now. It currently focuses on projects capable of developing new ideas within the national framework, while identifying young companies, as well as different methods to promote the free circulation of new arts.
