With almost 40,000 inhabitants, Rovereto is the second largest town in the Trentino after the main town of Trento, also in terms of cultural and economic importance
Still today you can see how strong the Venetians influenced the inner town 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 can find the mortal remains of more than 20,000 victims of World War I, 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. In addition, the historical War Museum in the castle of Rovereto can be visited.
