Municipalities and resorts around the Brenta Dolomites,Trentino:
Pinzolo, Val Rendena.

In the Middle Ages Pinzolo was famous for having one of the first Compagnia dei Battuti (a religious group of lay people). The church of San Vigilio, famous for its Danse Macabre by Simone Baschenis of Averaria, dates back to before the year 1000. Pinzolo’s proximity to the Adamello peaks, through which the Austrian-Italian front line ran, meant that it was inevitably caught up in the First World War. At the beginning of the 19th century many locals were forced to emigrate through economic hardship, taking the traditional Rendena Valley craft of knife-grinding with them. The strategic position of Pinzolo and its excellent conference and sports facilities make it an important holiday resort as well as a spa resort.
