Itineraries of Art and History

The words with which Dante, in 1303, described the landslide he saw near Rovereto, while he was staying at Castelbarco's, are certainly the most well-known words of praise to the beauty of the town, but they are not the only ones.
Two centuries later, indeed, the French philosopher Michel de Montaigne dedicated to the town some pages of its "Journey to Italy", and in 1769 a young but already famous Mozart hold his first two Italian concerts at Baroni Todeschi palace, where he could also drink the marzemino, the wine he mentioned later in the "Dom Juan". And again, at the end of the XVIII century, Rovereto was crossed by the Pope Pius VI, Goethe and Napoleon, who quartered, with his General Staff, in Fedrigotti palace.
