Trentino – South Tyrol  is one of the most peculiar regions of Italy. Composed of two autonomous provinces, the Italian-speaking Trentino, with its capital Trento, and the mostly-German speaking South Tyrol (Alto Adige in Italian, Südtirol in German) whose capital is Bozen (Bolzano), the region extends from lake Garda to the Austrian border and is renowned for being home of some of the most terrific mountain landscapes in the world.
Part of the Austrian Empire until 1918, the whole region shows all its multicultural background, which combines Mediterranean and Nordic culture into a unique ensemble. A diversity fully expressed in the region’s museums, many of which are widely considered among the best in Italy in their genre.
