Ecomuseo della Valle del Chiese

Situated in the south-westerly strip of Trentino, on the border with Lombardia, the Valle del Chiese is both historically and geographically a strategic frontier area between the German-speaking and Latin worlds, the mountains and the plain and the alpine and industrial economies. It can be considered to be the "Gateway to Trentino".

The ecomuseum, a cultural project started up in 2001 and sponsored by the fourteen municipalities in the valley, acts to promote the Chiese valley and its identity, by enhancing and developing itineraries and symbolic places, making it possible to rediscover its past history and explore the present day landscape and the communities who live there.
