Italian and central European culture, Trento is a treasure island to discover; art, culture and history are expressed within its palaces, museums and churches. They will unveil the periods of the Romans, medieval past and the renaissance of the city. It is a city full of life and culturally rich in every season.

Trento has pre-Romans origins and was conquered in 222 b.c. by the Romans (it was named Tridentum). It then waved on from the Ostrogoti to  theLongobardi before coming under the Franc’s rule until it became in the 10th century part of the sacred Roman Empire. From 1004 al 1800 it became an Episcopalian principality but the power of the church soon was fading away when Trento was later governed by the Count of Tyrol. Subsequently it was then ruled under the power of the Asburgo.

Trento has been enlisted during the war and the city was awarded the medal of Military value due to its participation of the liberation; since then it has also been awarded, the 16th of April 1976, the Golden Medal Of military Value due to the fact that its citizens gave a full support to the partisans in the fights during the second world war.
