Trentino-Alto Adige region is divided in two indipendent provinces, Trentino and the mostly German-speaking Alto Adige (SudTirol). Both the provinces have a legislative and administrative autonomy recognized by the Constitution of the Italian Republic.
Mountain region situated in the heart of the Alps, Trentino-Alto Adige includes in its territory the Dolomites chain.
Trentino-Alto Adige has always been a crossroad between the Latin and Germanic culture; local traditions and a large number of museums and castles testimony about its interesting history.
