Ecomuseo Argentario Civezzano

In 2010 a NASA space probe crash-landed on the moon and found silver. It would have been enough to land on Monte Calisio to understand that the moon is truly made of that metal and that wise poets have always described it as such. Indeed, inside the Ecomuseum the landscape is lunar and accessible only to trained speleologists. Here medieval miners dug thousands of shafts and kilometre after kilometre of tunnels to extract the silver that would supply the mints of all of Tyrol. It also yielded the red ammonite used to build the city of Trento and the slabs of porphyry that still pave our squares. Overground, on the other hand, 180 km of marked trails provided with information boards lead through all types of landscape, including protected natural reserves. Hikes suitable for all levels of fitness through wetlands and peat bogs, meadows and bonsai groves, against the wonderful backdrop of Lago di Santa Colomba. And then there is the most modern military fort of the whole Austro-Hungarian front during World War I. An ideal place to fall in love with the mountains.
