Trentino Alto Adige Trentino Alto Adige is the most northern Italian region. It is bordered by two countries: Switzerland and Austria. It consists of two different regions, Trentino to the south (province of Trento), the Alto Adige or South Tyrol in the north (the province of Bolzano).
The territory is wholly mountainous, outside the valley, mostly flat. Numerous mountain ranges belong to the Eastern Alps. To the north the Alps Ötztal and Zillertal Alps. To the west rise the group Adamello and the imposing Ortler-Cevedale, whose top reaches 3905 m. More to the east lie the Dolomites with the group and the chain of the Marmolada, Sella, derive their name from the dolomite rock of limestone, which was formed under the sea millions of years ago and then suffered erosion agents atmospheric, reaching its present: the high walls crowned with sharp points which are called teeth, lace, bell towers, blades. At sunrise and sunset becoming pink and purple, very suggestive. Important passes: the Reschenpass and that of Brenner, which connect with Austria Pordoi, on the border with Veneto.
Among the mountain chains open along valleys rather different landscapes and settlements. The greater the valley, which in the first section is called the Val Venosta, and crosses the region from north to south is large and sunny, and is covered entirely by the river Adige. Among the other valleys, home to some tourist centers, such as the Val Gardena and Val di Sole, some are famous for particular types of crops such as apples from Val di Non.
The glaciers feed lakes and rivers. The most important river is the Adige, the second largest in Italy after the Po flows fall in this region and partly in Veneto for 410 km in total, and should lead to the Adriatic, to stem the disastrous floods that have occurred in the past has been constructed a culvert which conveys a certain amount of water in Lake Garda. Two other important rivers are the Sarca and the Brenta. Numerous lakes, both alpine and artificial. Among the natural lakes, Lake Covel was formerly known as "lake of blood" because it goes red at the hands of microscopic algae, have now disappeared for the pollution.
The climate is typically alpine, with cold winters and cool summers. The temperature is reduced in the vicinity of rivers and lakes and in the valley: the basin of Merano, for example, enjoys a particularly mild climate.
