RE: Malga Pallazo - where?

by Lacristina

I can’t believe you’re going to try this! It sounds impossible with an average grade of 20% and as much as 30% in some spots!

This start is apparently located near Besenello which is about 15 kilometers south of Trento.

Here’s a link for biking:

And another link that shows the malga.

Travel Tips for Trento

The free tour

by iandsmith

My favourite thing about Trento is the free tour. Bring it on I say. Shame I've only had the first ten minutes of it. Twice! (see my Intro page for humorous view).
It happens on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and is multilingual.
One of the first things you get to see on the tour (no matter how many times you take it) is the Palazzo Salvadori, a Renaissance-style palace built in the early 1500s by the Lombard artist Lucio di Pietro.
What you find out though is that it sits where the Jewish synagogue from the middle ages once was.
There are two oval medallions above the doors, sculpted by Francesco Oradini. They tell a poignant tale of how a boy was found "drowned" in the river but, upon inspection, he was believed to have been strangled.
The Jews were falsely blamed (as they seem to be for most things) and the Catholics did nothing to stem that victimization (as our guide was wont to point out) and so today these two plaques depict Simonino's martrydom and glory. The victimization was officially recanted in 1965.
A rough translation (and here I am indebted to fellow VT member tapis volant) goes as follows: "In the depths of these buildings where once there was a synagogue now a small shrine has been constructed. The blessed matyr, three toothed Simon, 29 months old,was murdered by utmost torture by the Jews on the 23rd March 1475 in the dead of night."
Here again I am indebted to tapis_volant for her work in tracking the full story down.
"Born in Trent, Italy, in 1472; died 1475. According to reports of the time, Simon was a 2-1/2-year-old Christian boy living in Trent, Italy. The story was told that the Jews met in the synagogue on Tuesday of Holy Week to decide how to celebrate Passover that year, which fell on Holy Thursday. Reportedly, they
decided to sacrifice a Christian child on Good Friday out of hatred for Christ.
A Jewish doctor cajoled young Simon from his home while his parents were attending the Tenebrae service on Wednesday evening. The story continues that he was murdered at midnight on Holy Thursday. The description of his crucifixion is horrid. After his death his body was supposedly hidden in various places to prevent his parents from finding it and finally thrown into the river.
Under intensive and terrible torture, those arrested for the crime admitted to it, were executed after further torture, and burnt. The synagogue was destroyed and a chapel erected on the spot where the child was thought to have been martyred. The child's relics now rest in a stately tomb in St Peter's Church in Trent. Though the murder was blamed on the Jews of Trent, there never was
any proof that such a crime was committed for ritualistic purposes. The account of Tiberinus, the physician who inspected the child's body, and the juridical acts can be found with recorded notes of the day.
The trial was reviewed in Rome by Sixtus IV in 1478 but he did not authorize the cultus of Saint Simon; it was done by Sixtus V in 1588, largely on account of miracles worked at his shrine.
While miracles were later reported at the child's tomb, this is not one of the more stellar events in the history of the Church as evidenced by the removal of his name from the Roman Martyrology in 1965 by the Sacred Congregation of Rites, that forbade all future veneration. The cause behind the child's death is considered quite uncertain.
As to why his feast is celebrated liturgically if it is forbidden I'll venture a guess. There are probably some churches which had been dedicated to his patronage and celebrate their patronal feast day. It is indeed possible that Simon is numbered among the saints in heaven, as evidenced by the miracles, but not for being a martyr, which is the primary reason the cultus was banned.
In art, St. Simon is a child crucified, tortured, or mocked by Jews. At times
he may be shown (1) strangled with a cloth around his neck, holding a banner,
nails, and pincers; or (2) with a palm (sign of a martyr) and long bodkin."

Castel Besano

by iandsmith

South of Trento, and north of Revereto, if you're on the main strada, you can't help but notice something on a prominent hillside. At night, under floodlights, it is positively dramatic; an inspiring sight dominating the heavens. Castel Besano was actually lived in until 1973 but, when you see the state it is in even today, it is plainly obvious that only a very small part of it must have been occupied.
(For more details and pictures, see my travelogue and Intro)

Rovereto

by garibaldi

Rovereto is near Trento and it was the last town under Venetian domination. If you love contemporary art here you can find a new and interesting meseum: MART.
Near Rovereto you can visit " Sabbionara d'Avio" Castle or bike along Adige river (cycle-path) to come back to Trento.

Chiesa San Francisco Saverio

by sandysmith

At the end of Via Belenzani is the Jesuit church of San Francisco Saverio. We didn't go inside but the interior is reputed to have the best baroque art in the city. The exterior for the façade, the artist has combined the colours of the paints with the colours of the stones from the Trentino quarries

Palazzo Thun

by JLBG

On via Orne (Urn passage), a narrow passage that leads from Via Belinzani to Via Oss Mazzurana, we discovered one night the splendid façade shown on the photo. It is one of the parts of Palazzo Thun, a heterogeneous body of buildings. They were built, beginning in 1454, when the family Thun, coming from Val di Non (Non valley) established in Trento.
