to a modern ski resort
Madonna di Campiglio, whose history was largely influenced by its extraordinary alpine identity, has always fascinated travellers and famous figures, until it turned into the famous and fashionable destination it is today.
In 1886 Franz Joseph Österreicher chose Campiglio as the holiday resort for the Habsburg family and the Empress Sissi.
The beautiful landscape and the abundant snowfalls of this resort contribute to make Campiglio a leading world winter resort, renowned for its spectacular ski runs and natural beauty.
From home to the Battuti Companies
to Tourist Resort
The information we have about Pinzolo’s history in medioeval time comes from written documents mainly relating of economy and religion: in that period a strong influence was exerted by one of the first ‘Compagnie dei Battuti’ of Trentino. The “Battuti” were a religious congregation of laymen who devoted their lives to prayer, harsh penance and charity.
In the first decades of the 16th century the Baschenis, a family of itinrant painters, decorated the churches of the Rendena Valley, leaving behind important works of art that we can still admire today.
In 1823 Nepomuceno Bolognini was born in Pinzolo. He was one of the most significant figures of the Risorgimento in Trentino, the founder of the SAT, i.e. Trentino Mountaineers’ Society, a studier and spreader Pinzolo’s history and folklore.
The First World War had on the Adamello range one of its most important theatres and did not spare Pinzolo from death, danger and difficulty. Moreover, due to their extreme poverty, many people of both the village and the valley had to leave their native land and go looking for work and better conditions.
In accordance with Pinzolo’s tourist and mountain vocation, the first Alpine Rescue Corp was formed there in 1952. Soon winter tourism bloomed, and the resort has now become the ideal place for family holidays all year round.
