Trentino benefits of its geographical position as a culture node rich of history, cultural differences and natural beauty.

Trentino can boast a first class range of cultural facilities. The Museo di Arte Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto (MART), designed by the Ticino architect Mario Botta, is one of the most important contemporary art museums in Europe.

The extensive archaeological, painting, and medieval art collections of Castello del Buonconsiglio are also on display in the Castles of Beseno, Stenico and Thun.

The Museo degli Usi e Costumi della Gente Trentina  in San Michele all’Adige is dedicated to the trades, art and religious traditions typical of rural life in the alpine environment.

In Trento the new Science Museum (MUSE) designed by Renzo Piano will be completed shortly. It represents a masterpiece of “green” architecture, offering an innovative itinerary exploring different altitudes in order to discover the changing nature of the landscape and human habitat, with the focus on alpine ecosystems.

There is also an extensive range of cultural initiatives at international level, starting with the Festival of Economics, which brings together Nobel prize-winners, economists, political decision-makers and civil society in Trento, with a wide-ranging programme of meetings, debates and discussions on the most important economic issues of our time.
