Crossing Vallagarina, the old route between northern Europe and the Italian plains, the eye is struck by the harmonious succession of castles and rows of vines in a gently rolling landscape with mountains on either side following the characteristic glacial conformation. The line of defence along which the castle were built to control the strategic compulsory passage is clearly defined. Castel Beseno, a veritable fortified citadel, Castel Pietra just south of it, Castel Noarna and lastly Sabbionara d'Avio. The bottom of the valley is covered with endless rows of vines that produce white wines, spumantes and red wines including the famous Marzemino mentioned by Mozart in his opera Don Giovanni. The great Salzburg musician linked his name to Rovereto when he performed his first public concert there at a very young age. Homage is paid to Mozart every year with a cycle of concerts. Suspended between this and a thousand other ancient memories, over the centuries, the two town has consolidated its own personalised cultural pole open to the south and counter to a more nordic Trento. In its historic centre, Rovereto is paved with alleys, small squares and porticoes that seem to be stolen from Venetian architecture, like the sober mansion of the sink merchants and artisan (silk-worm raising used to be a flourishing activity in the whole of the valley). A museum, bearing the name of an illustrious Roveretan, Fortunato Depero the leader of futurism, occupies the house where he lived. Other celebrities, evidence of the cultural vitality of this town, were the musician Riccardo Zandonai and the philosopher Antonio Rosmini. Among the other features are the great Bell of the Fallen and the War Museum housed in Rovereto Castle. Recently a new attraction of current scientific interest, or more curiosity, has been created by the Jurassic Park effect. Some tracks with prints left by dinosaurs millions of years ago have found on the slopes of Mount Zugna, a few kilometres south of Rovereto.
