flag of Trentino-South Tyrol - italy

The Italian speaking Trentino-named after Trento, the regional capital- and the German speaking Alto Adige or Sudtirol (South Tyrol, the region bordering the upper reaches of the river Adige) differ dramatically in culture. Howeverm they do share one feature in common: majestic Dolomites that form the backdrop to every town and village, covered in snow for three months of every year and carpeted with exquisite Alpine plants of another three.
It is one out of the four autonomous Italian regions.
