Including some 35,000 inhabitants, Rovereto is the second largest city in Trentino, right after the city of Trento.
Still today you can see how strong the Venetians influenced the inner city of Rovereto, with its ancient buildings and memorials.
Rovereto is a popular town especially with those interested in modern arts, as a number of modern artists were born right here in this city. One of them was the Italian futurist painter Fortunato Depero. Rovereto, furthermore, features the main seat of the so-called MART, the museum of modern and contemporary art. Within shortest time the museum has become one of the main European venues for art and culture.
To remember the atrocities of war - this is the main aim of the military memorial “Ossario Castel Dante”, where you will find the mortal remains of more than 20,000 victims of World War 1, such as Fabio Filzi or Damiano Chiesa. Another evidence of the past is the Peace Bell on the hill of Miravalle, ringing out every night to remember those lost in times of war. A historical war museum is found at the castle of Rovereto.
