Travel Tips for Trento
Palazzo della Regione, the Presidence
Palazzo della Regione Trentino-Alto Adige is a low, modern looking building lying in front of Dante's Square with a wide open gallery running in front. The entrance bears on one side “Palazzo della Regione Trentino-Alto Adige Presidenza Giunta Regionale” and on the other side “Region Trentino Süd Tirol, Präsidium des Regionalausschusses”.
Provincia autonoma di Trento (Autonome province of Trento) and Provincia autonoma di Bolzano (Autonome province of Bolzano) make up the Regione Trentino-Alto Adige.
TheTrento Province has several small linguistic minorities.
A Ladin speaking minority. Ladin is a mountain Latin language of the Rheto-Roman branch, also spoken in Switzerland (where it is the fourth national language, appearing on the banknotes).
Two minorities speaking German languages, the Mochen language and the Cimbra language.
The situation in the Bolzano province, is very different. The population is mainly native German speaking (69%). Native Italian speakers occur for only 26% of the population, mainly in Bolzano/Bolzen. The Ladin minority accounts for 5%. German is an official language in the province, together with Italian. The Bolzano province is also called Alto Adige/Süd Tirol province. Both name have been officially recognized by the Italian constitution in 2001.
A piece of our history
This strange building is covered by a sort of plate that remember the period of the Italian fascism. The plate talk about the Italian people that will defend their country by fighting versus the enemies. That sounds very strange today....
Duomo in Trento
If you are coming to Trento, its Duomo shouldn't be missed as it's one of the main attractions. The Duomo marks the historic town's center. Its ancient architecture reminds visitors of Trento's rich culture that has spanned for centuries. The area around the Duomo is also well worth seeing as you can find lots of shops and restaurants.
Casa Rella, details of the frescoes
The first photo shows a man in a Roman looking attire, sat on a two wheeled cart drawn by three deer.
The second photo shows a walking man welcoming a horseman holding a sword on his belt.
The third photo shows a man in a tunic sat at the end of a table while another person (woman?) raises one hand.
The fourth photo shows a woman (fortune goddess?) floating over a wheel, with a child on her back and another trying to climb towards her, holding a may-be torch. What does that mean, I do not know!
On the fifth photo, I have put together two pictures of the frescoes.
On the left, another woman riding a single cart wheel, with a sphere in her left hand (the world?) and a strange apparatus looking like a cheese grater in her right hand. Actually, I have finally found that it represented Nemesis, the goddess of vengeance in the Greek mythology.
On the right, a man is playing an instrument (lute?)
Palazzo Sardagna was built in the XVth and restructured in the XIVth by the family Sardagna. It is now owned by the autonomous province of Trento and is the seat of the Museo Tridentino di Scienze Naturali (Natural Sciences Museum of the Trento region).
