The brand Mela Alto Adige IGP (German Sudtiroler Apfel ggA) indicates the apples grown in Alto Adige with traditional production methods. South Tyrol is the largest area devoted to European concentrated fruit. Of the more than a dozen varieties of apples grown locally eleven have obtained in 2005 the European mark of protected geographical indication (PGI) and are therefore recognized throughout Europe as regional specialties. The brand Mela Alto Adige IGP is used by all distributors in South Tyrol for the export product. It seems that the first apple trees in Europe have developed in Kazakhstan, Central Asia. Apples arrived later in Greece along the Silk Road, and finally reached even the Tyrol at the time of the Roman conquests. In this area, the cultivation of apples took place in the Middle Ages, mostly at the hands of the monasteries, which were then custodians of knowledge relating to methods of cultivation and the different varieties of the fruit. Even farming families exploited for several centuries the apple for their own self-subsistence. Even then, the South Tyrolean apple was exported to the north across the Alpine passes. The construction of a railway line that ran through the Brenner, in 1867, facilitated further exports. Between 1880 and 1890, the South Tyrolean fruit growers won a certain amount of land for cultivation by regulating the course of the Adige and the subsequent reclamation of wetlands surrounding. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, were born at last the first cooperatives of fruit growers. Since then, the cultivation of apples in South Tyrol has always had a great importance.

The sanctuary of St. Romedius is a shrine dedicated to the figure of St. Romedius - situated on a steep rock outcrop, the beautiful natural scenery of the Val di Non, in the municipality of Coredo. The sanctuary consists of five churches built over a period of about nine hundred years between 1000 and 1918. The five churches were built in the shelter of a steep rock face and are joined together by a spectacular staircase of 130 steps. It is visited every year by about 200,000 people, and is guarded by two brothers of the Order of St. Francis of Assisi. Romedius lived between the fourth and fifth centuries, the heir of a wealthy Bavarian family, lord of a castle near Innsbruck and owner of saline in the valley; After a pilgrimage to Rome, he gave all his possessions to the church and retired to a hermitage in the Val di Non in some caves still exist today in the vicinity of the sanctuary. They followed him two companions, Abraham and David. It is said that one day, having to go to Trento to greet Vigilio, then bishop of the city, he asked David to saddle the horse: the disciple returned with the news that a bear had mauled the horse. Romedius was unimpressed and ordered him to saddle the bear, which - here's the miracle - meekly allowed himself to put the saddle, then Romedius leading up to Trent. This episode is remembered by a wooden statue placed next to a triumphal arch at the entrance of the Sanctuary. For over five hundred years, the rock that housed the ancient shrine stood naked, with a staircase discovery and some newsstands now disappeared. At the bottom were the stables, shelters for pilgrims and the caretaker's cottage. The original church dedicated to St. Romedius was built around 1000 on the tomb of the saint, with stones brought up there by the ancient pilgrims. The cult of St Romedius was officially recognized by the Church in 1300 and the devotion to the Holy town increased greatly in the fifteenth century, when the sanctuary was crowded by many pilgrims who brought votive offerings. In 1489 began the construction of the second church dedicated to St. George. Then in 1514 it was built the church of St. Michael in 1536 and the main church of St. Romedius. In the same period (sixteenth century) is the bell tower, still in Gothic-Cles. For the last was erected in 1918, the church of the Addolorata, as a sign of thanks to the Virgin for the newfound peace after the tragedy of the First World War.

Buildings are rebuilt from scratch at the ground floor used for the reception of pilgrims, at the stalls and barns. The churches are embraced with the construction of 'apartment Counts and the gallery (1725), the sacristy and the library at the top. The second part of the staircase is covered and then animated with the newsstands of the mysteries of Christ's passion. Above the chapel of St. George rising two-bedroom dwelling; Finally, the entrance arch is erected on the sacred place (1770).

The term 'speck' first appears in Tyrol's history in documents dated back to the 18th century. However, the word makes was first used under different names and definitions in the trade registers and butchers' ordinance as far back as the year 1200. The term has its roots in the Middle High German word 'spec' and the Ancient High German word 'spek' and actually translates into 'something thick, fat.' South Tyrol's history documents that South Tyrolean farmers originally cured speck to preserve the meat. The ham was intended for home consumption. Traditionally, pigs were slaughtered during the Christmas Season. The production of speck ensured that farmer's had a supply of preserved meat for the entire year. The ham recipe was carefully guarded and handed down from generation to generation. The ancestral seasoning secrets from more than 100 years ago still give the speck its typical taste today. Speck Alto Adige is in no way related to the standard fatty pork belly speck described by the common German term. Speck is the result of a combination of two methods used to preserve meat: the standard Mediterranean style curing process for raw ham and smoking, which is a process typically used in Northern Europe. As a result, a unique South Tyrolean ham was created based on the traditional rule 'a little salt, a little smoke and a lot of fresh air.' Speck is an ingredient used in numerous typical South Tyrolean dishes, such as the South Tyrolean Speck Dumplings. In South Tyrol, this ham paired with bread and wine, is the main component in the genuine 'Marende' and the typical South Tyrolean snack platter. Over the centuries, Speck Alto Adige has been continually upgraded and is now considered a star ingredient by many award-winning chefs.

Lake Toblino (Tobliner See in German) is a small alpine lake in the valley located in Trentino, surrounded by a lush reeds and vegetation particularly interesting. The lake and the surrounding area has been d a natural habitat for both botanical interests both ethological, and is as such protected by the Autonomous Province of Trento. Bathing is not technically prohibited, but the low temperature of the water and strong currents strongly advise against it. It is located at an altitude of 245 meters above sea level, and occupies the terminal part of the Valley of the Lakes, not far from Trento, near the villages of Padergnone, Sarche, Vezzano and Calavino. The lake was formed by damming by an alluvial fan created by the exit of the gorge of the River Sarca Limaro'. It is a basin with very small dimensions; Moreover, after the construction of the nearby waterworks Santa Massenza, in 1951, has triggered a process of sedimentation that, in addition to slightly muddy the waters, it is slowly decreasing depth.

The Autonomous Province of Trento involved the demolition of the old prison of Trento - designed in 1876 by Austrian architect Karl Schaden and symbol of the Austro-Hungarian kingdom - following the planned construction of a new Prison. The Austro-Hungarian prisons and the old Palace of Justice are parts of a single monument and their architectural value is given not just from being a monument end in itself, but a building unit, a unique set that must be safeguarded and respected. The difference in the architectural language was solely due to the different functions of the buildings.

And 'one of the oldest cheeses of the alpine mountain and from January 26, 2004 can boast of enrollment in the register of protected designations of origin, which protects the quality within national borders and Europe. At one time it was produced in a traditional way the farms ('munt', or 'Munc' in the plural, in the local dialect), before transferring the cows pasture. Today, the production, for the most part, is obtained in the dairy Pinzolo (about 50 tons of milk per day from which are extracted on average 54 forms). In the past Spressa was essentially a product 'residual', farmers and cheese makers were trying to get milk from the greatest possible amount of butter, well paid by the local market. What remained was used for the production of a cheese poor, whose consumption was reserved almost exclusively for the family farmer. The name Spressa comes from the dialect spress, ie the mass congealed juice. Today Spressa Giudicarie DOP is no longer skinny as before, because there would be more acceptable to the consumer, but it's still a low-fat cheese. The first historical references date back to ancient times, as evidenced by the Rule of Spinal and Manez of 1249. More recently, the references to this cheese can be traced in '' Urbario Marini, in which, for the years 1915 and 1916, shows the Spressa polenta as a typical cheese. Today the situation has changed in part because they were introduced modern equipment that ensure compliance with current hygiene rules, but remained unchanged the attention and care that you put into the production of this cheese. Even the procedures and methods of production, although with the necessary technological adjustments, were strictly those of the past. The use of raw milk only allows the production of a genuine cheese, with aromas, scents and flavors that are characteristic and is derived primarily from the local hay used. Monitoring compliance with the specification of production is entrusted to the Agency for Quality in Agriculture AQA S. Michele a / Adige, which operates on the basis of a specific Control Plan approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. This Control Plan covers both farms whose milk can be used for the production of Spressa Giudicarie DOP, both dairies transformers, both seasoners cheese. Spressa Giudicarie is a cheese made from raw cow's milk obtained from cows of the Rendena (native), Bruna, Grigio Alpina, Friesian and Simmental.
