Day 1 – Wednesday, 2 August 2023: Welcome reception & guided tour of the Buonconsiglio Castle

The welcome aperitif will take place at the Buonconsiglio Castle, the largest and most important monumental complex in the Trentino Alto Adige region. From the 13th century to the end of the 18th century, it was the residence of the prince-bishops of Trento, and is made up of a series of buildings from different periods, enclosed within a wall in a slightly elevated position with respect to the city. Given the warm season, the participants will be able to enjoy the beauty of the castle gardens, as well as the elevated Loggia del Romanino where the aperitif will take place. The day will end with a guided tour of the structure, paying particular attention to the Torre dell’Aquila, which houses the famous “Ciclo dei Mesi”, one of the most fascinating pictorial cycles of the profane theme of the late Middle Ages which bears witness to peasant life with the passing of the seasons.
