Stories that deserve to be told. People struggling and thriving on a borderland. From Alpine peaks to Mediterranean slopes. Discover Trentino, a unique piece of Italy in the heart of Europe.
The Giudicarie Valley (or Judicaria, its ancient place-name) is a rural region with a deep-rooted tradition of community activism and voluntary work. Millennia of interaction between humans and nature, in a microcosm that borders at the same time with the Mediterranean climate of Lake Garda and the 10,000-feet-high rocky peaks of the Brenta Dolomites, produced a distinctive connection between the environment and its inhabitants, recently acknowledged by the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere program. Today, it is home to a vibrant community that honors this rich heritage and has undertaken its path to the future through innovative social and ecological practices.
