Photographer's Note

Canale di Tenno, Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy.

The medieval village Canale di Tenno sits perched
on a mountain slope halfway between Lake Garda and the Alps. It has recently been included in the list of the most beautiful villages in Italy and this is not surprising: narrow paved alleys, arcades, small internal squares, houses set one against the other, as ancient villages of the 13 century so often were.
The village was abandoned after the war, but in the sixties it came back to life thanks to lively artistic and cultural activities. The Casa degli Artisti (Home of the Artists), dedicated to the artist Giacomo Vittone, has its seat here and is a residence and meeting place for artists from the whole of Europe.
Another of Canale’s attractions is the beauty of its surrounding landscape: from its 428 metre position you can admire the splendid Lake Garda, and behind it imposing mountains. Or you can reach Lake Tenno, one of the clearest stretches of water in Trentino, characterized by its intense turquoise colour.
When we were there, there was hardly a soul about, although I spied this young lad, perhaps surprised to see someone else on the street.
