Teatro, Piazza Cesare Battisti
Cesare Battisti was born in 1875, in Trento, then a part of Austria-Hungary. He became a leader of the "irredentismo" movement that fought for Italian speaking territories, such as the Trento region, to become part of Italy. He was sentenced to death for high treason to Austria and executed in the courtyard of Castello del Buonconsiglio in 1916.
Piazza Cesare Battisti, though in the old city center looks very different. On one side of the square, stands the theater with a very modern look.
Monument in the Piazza Dante, which happens to be a park, unlike other piazzas. Here there is a monument dedicated to Dante Alighieri that provides evidence of the sentiment for which Trento's irredentists, notably Battisti, died.
Peaceful looking church in Trento
But looks can be deceiving.
Excellent Renaissance relief sculpture adorns the exterior of this now unassuming church near Trento ( Trent ) city square. From this very church a decree was issued in AD 1545. The decree established the dreaded Council of Trent, and all of the hatred, murder, plundering, inquisitions, and basic religious intolerances that were spawned by it.
Just visiting this now peaceful church serves as a reminder for us to make tolerance, love, and understanding basic in our human relationships.
Many trains daily to Trento from Venezia, Verona, and Milano.
Stand by the baroque Neptune fountain, sculpted by Francesco Antonio Giongo in 1767 and take a good look around this marvellous square and its buildings. The Cathedral of San Vigilio, with a portico before the front door and a large rosette representing Fortune; Palazzo Pretorio, an embattled building that was an archbishops' residence and now hosts the Diocesan Museum; and the tower Torre Civica, built in 1200 on the ruins of the Roman gate. Another building located in the square is Palazzo Balduini with its rich decorations of garlands of flowers and fruit, This palace dates back to the late 15th century and are the oldest external decorations of the buildings of the city.
