Rovereto, city of culture

Located between Trento and Verona, the City of Peace, of festivals and museums

Rovereto will amaze you with its international museums. Stroll through art, history and science and discover the Venetian feel of the old town center.

Located among picturesque hills and vineyards, Rovereto is in the centre of Valle dell’Adige, along the main road that connects other two main cities, Trento and Verona.

We recommend to explore the city by foot, getting lost the streets of the historical center and feeling part of a journey through different time periods:

  • the Middle Ages in the walls of Castelbarco
  • the influence of the Republic of Venice in the home of the Podestà
  • the Eighteenth Century palaces in Corso Bettini
  • the evidences of the First World War in the rooms of the castle

Walking through the city streets, you will meet the most important and prestigious Eighteenth century palaces such as the Accademia degli Agiati, Teatro Zandonai and the city library in Annona Palace.

Many renowned guests have visited Rovereto in the past, perhaps the most famous is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who held his first concert in Italy in San Marco church.

In Rovereto you can also visit different art, history and science museums such as Mart, Depero’s House of Futurist Art, the Italian War Museum and the City Museum Foundation.

Being a city-stage, Rovereto offers a wide range of artistic events: dance, theater, music, cinema and archeological events, prose seasons and outdoor shows. By taking part to these events, you can experience the real atmosphere of this city long known as a crossroad of peoples and cultures: Settenovecento Festival, Oriente Occidente Festival, Mozartian week and the Archaeological Cinema season.

Rovereto is also known as the City of Peace, as evidenced by the large memorial bell named Campana dei Caduti. Created with the melted bronze of the cannons of the nations that took part in WWI, each evening its 100 tolls spread a universal message of peace. In the surroundings, it is located another memorial monument, Castel Dante, that hosts the remains of more than 20.000 soldiers.
