The wonders of Trentino's power plants
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 contact the service managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
The Cogolo hydroelectric power plant is a fine example of industrial architecture from the twenties. This unique valuable power plant is considered to be the most beautiful in Italy, and it fits in perfectly with its extraordinary natural surroundings. Its large, finely decorated rooms reveal all the secrets of how water becomes clean energy. The Cogolo power plant was built at the foot of the Ortles-Cevedale mountain range in 1929 and is still in perfect working condition.
