The market stands on Piazza Vittoria. At first, I thought that it meant "Victory square" but I felt it was a very small square for a victory, which always large!
On the pedestal of the statue that watch the market, I could read (last photo)
"Al grande scultore, I concittadini nel tri centenario della morte" (to the great sculptor, his fellow citizens, for the third centenary of his death).
And on the other side:
"Alessandro Vittoria, morto a Venezia MDCVIII" (Alexander Vittoria died in Venice in 1608).
Then, this is not Victory square but the square for Mr Vittoria, the sculptor!
We were there in early October and the peak of the mushrooms season was over. There were only three shops and not more than 15-20 different species. We will have to come back in late August-early September to have the market at it's best!
Trento is Europe's capital for wild mushrooms. The mushroom market is famous for the city squad that every morning, from 7 AM to 9 AM checks and identifies the mushrooms that will be sold on the market. They identify also, for free, the mushrooms submitted by individuals. Year round, they identify 200-220 different species..
This shop is located close tothe city main square so it's easy to find it. When you need to buy something for next winter, this is the right place. You can also find different shoes for hiking or just for walking.
What to buy: Shoes, sky equipment in general.
What to pay: about average, don't worry.
There are a lot of shopping oppurtunities on the streets of Trento. You can find everything from clothing, shoes, to tools and toys. In particular, there's a pretty cheap shoe store in the city center that sells good quality, "Made in Italy" shoes. Italian shoes are very fine and will last a long time. A lot of them made of leather.
What to pay: Good quality shoes, only 10-20 euros a pair. You will probably pay a lot more if you buy them outside of Italy.
The white truffle is the king of truffles, subterranean fungi, but Cesar's Amanita, Amanita Caesarea, is the king (the queen?!) of the over-the-ground mushrooms
The first photo shows a “misto nostrano”, mixture of local mushrooms. There are
Porcini (Boletus edulis) and some other bolets.
Coprinus, etc (to be completed)
