The guardians of memory and tradition
ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
There’s history with a capital “H”, written by kings and popes and recounted by castles, cathedrals and monuments. And then there’s the history of the people, less majestic but maybe more authentic. It’s the history of ancient crafts and professions, of the hard work to “tame” new lands and raise families. These are the stories safeguarded by ecomuseums, often little known but well worth a visit if you wish to truly understand the history of Trentino.
