Four seasons of great events
Trento is a historic, cultural, international but human-sized city framed by the Alps... the ideal stage for festivals and major events.
Trento, the city of festivals
Trento is a fascinating and unmissable city, where the history one breathes in the cobbled alleyways of the historic centre meets the modernity of a lively university hub. Its dimension between the ancient and the modern, between history and innovation, makes Trento the perfect location for big events and festivals such as Trento Film Festival, Festival of Economics, the Festival of Sport and Autumnus - the fruits of the earth. Tradition and folklore, on the other hand, have their highest expression in the Feste Vigiliane, in honour of the city's patron saint. Among the events that have become part of the city's history are the Mostra dell'Agricoltura and the Trento-Bondone hill climb.
Festivals and big events
A rich programme of meetings, events, talks and keynotes that will be attended by opinion leaders of national and international relevance and prominent personalities including scientists and researchers, representatives of civil society and institutions, economists, entrepreneurs, managers and representatives of the most important academic realities in Italy and worldwide during the four days in June in which Trento and its Festival will become the centre of economic and social debate at an international level.
Il Festival dello Sport
A unique festival of great champions and unforgettable experiences to discover all the ways of experiencing sport. Four days, rich and intense, with protagonists of great national and international sport.
One of the most eagerly awaited events of the Trentino summer. The event, dedicated to the patron saint of the city of Trento, enlivens the historic center with shows for adults and children, tradition and moments of great conviviality.
