The old Castellalto area of jurisdiction included the municipalities of Carzano, Telve, Telve di Sopra and Torcegno. It is situated in the lower Valsugana, on the left-hand bank of the River Brenta, between the cone of the Ceggio stream and the right-hand bank of the Maso stream, stretching up to an altitude of two thousand metres in the southern mountains of the Lagorai chain.

The four towns have a common past under the jurisdiction of the Lords of Castellalto in the medieval era. The four communities have always had a close relationship with the Lagorai mountains and their woods and pastures, as these were the basis of the economy and life of the inhabitants.
