Hometown: Trento

For three years I’ve been living in this town, Trento. I was actually born here, but grew up in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere. I’ve always thought that I would have never ended up studying so close to home, but this city actually hosts the best Italian law school, so I could not escape. You may ask yourself why I’m telling you this, and here’s an easy answer: spring has come, and I’ve been wandering around downtown with my sunglasses and my camera, trying to look at everything with a different point of view. So I’ve decided to show you how beautiful this small gem in the Alps is, and tell you also something about it.

There are only about 120 thousands people here, but this city has always been a crossroad of cultures. Founded by the Romans more than 2.000 years ago, it was the last outpost before the lands of the Barbarians; in the Middle Age it was the door from the land of the Pope and the rest of Europe, and was therefore chosen to host the Concilium, which lasted 18 years and during which the whole Catholic Church was reformed. Part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918, when it became Italy, it is now a semi-independent province, with one of the best universities, a great history, and an amazing cultural heritage.

I swear nobody pays me for advertising my town this much, I simply do it because I know how beautiful it is, and how much it is often under considered by tourists, as well as by the people actually living here. So I hope you’ll appreciate it as much as I do from this few pictures and, why not, come visit me! 😉
