Trentino is a region of Northern Italy rich of history, traditions and cultures. This Alpine area offers numerous castles, churches, museums but also trenches and fortification walls from the First World War.
In every valley of Trentino you can find the characteristic tower of a campanile presenting colourful painted patterns, or an ancient Romanesque parish church or solitary sanctuaries, symbols of the local alpine history and culture.
Specifically, near Terme di Comano, there is the medieval castle of Stenico, perfectly preserved and open to the public. It is a separate site of the bigger and majestic Castle of Buonconsiglio in Trento. You can also visit the pile-dwelling site and the archeological area in Fiave, which are today UNESCO World Heritage, and the medieval villages of Rango and San Lorenzo in Banale, which have been included to the “I Borghi Piu Belli D’Italia” (The most beautiful villages of Italy) Club.
Trentino is also rich of museums like the new MUSE, science museum, and MART, modern and contemporary art museum. There are also numerous galleries and secondary museums.
The region is strategically located for reaching cities like Bolzano, Verona, Venezia, Milano, Padova, Mantova in a very short time.
Discovering Trentino means living a varied experience which you will never forget: nature, wellbeing, culture and local traditions offer a land that will always surprise you.
From the 21st September to the 27th September 2015, the program will be embraced by the beautiful sceneries of the Dolomites of the Brenta and Adamello, from where the Sarca river is born. 4 contest fields along the river and one in the little Alpine lake Nembia, where European contesters coming from 20 different countries will be competing in the art of fly fishing. It is a technique that requires high level of competence as well as sophisticated equipment, often handmade by the fisherman himself, who pays attention to the morphology of the insects naturally present in the vicinity of the water streams at a particular time. The technique requires the catch and immediate release of the prey, right after the judge verifies the length of the fish. The last edition of the Championship was held in Sweden.
The 21st FIPS-Mouche European Fly Fishing Championship will be held along the Sarca river, which comes from the glaciers of the Adamello and flows into Lake Garda, from where it exits with the name of Mincio. 77km separate the spring from the lake.
The Championship contests will take place on 4 different sections along the higher level of the Sarca river: in Val Genova, in the area around Pinzolo, in the neighbouring areas of Tione di Trento and in Terme di Comano/Ponte Arche. The fifth section will be the Lake of Nembia.
Every athlete will have at his/her disposal around 200 metres of river for each of the five contests, always with section rotation.
