Trentino. From historic Rovereto along the Müller Thurgau and Marzemino wine routes

By Monday, 08 November 2021 08:00

The border between the Veneto and Trentino regions cuts through the Adige Valley where the Vallagarina begins – the main city is Rovereto - before continuing up to Calliano and Besenello. Along this route the visitor will discover different types of vineyards, in fact in the Avio area they grow Cabernet and Merlot and Chardonnay grapes especially in the valley, while in the hills we find the Müller Thurgau. And in Rovereto the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and the famous Marzemino, which is the symbol of the valley, predominate.

The Castel Veneto castle is the symbol of the city

Homeland of the Marzemino variety of grape Rovereto is a city rich in culture with an intact historic center and elegant patrician palaces. The Castel Veneto fortress, which is worth a visit, was built in the 1300s by the Castelbarco family, the lords of Vallagarina, and was transformed by the Venetians at the end of the 15th century. The sturdy walls and the towers reveal the prevailing military function of the old fortress, and in 1509 the castle was ceded to the Habsburgs, who kept it until 1918. 

The MART Museum of Modern Art and Venetian landmarks

During the Great War the fortress was heavily bombed, and since 1921 it has been the Italian War History Museum. Rovereto is also known the world over for the great Peace Bell on the Miravalle Hill that rings out a hundred chimes every evening to commemorate the fallen of all wars. The famous MART Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, designed by architect Mario Botta, is home to important temporary and permanent exhibitions, and the historic center still has many landmarks dating back to Venetian days.


Mozart gave his first Italian concert in Rovereto

The Corso Bettini main thoroughfare that starts from Piazza Rosmini square, the heart of modern Rovereto, has many beautiful eighteenth-century buildings including the Zandonai Theater which was built more than 200 years ago. Rovereto is also renowned for two major international festivals: East-West, a theater and dance celebration, and the W.A. Mozart International Festival in Rovereto, dedicated to the music of the great Austrian composer who gave his first Italian concert here.
