City of modern and contemporary art

The MART (Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto) makes Rovereto an internationally important centre of modern art. Among other things, the museum houses the most important collection of futuristic art in Italy and is also a relevant research centre. Besides the MART there is also the Casa D'Arte Futurista Depero.

Rovereto and Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was repeatedly a guest in the Vallagarina. In memory of this, much of the region's music revolves around him and his musical work. Rovereto is part of the association "Mozart Italia" and its initiatives. A festival week takes place regularly. Several organisations and also the current musicians are concerned with Mozart: e.g. the Trio Broz, the Associazione WAM, the Riccardo Zandonai International Study Centre, the Historical Piano Museum in Ala and the city of Ala in general.

Riccardo Zandonai

The composer Riccardo Zandonai from Rovereto was a very successful composer during his lifetime. He was almost on a par with Puccini and composed 11 operas. Unfortunately, he quickly fell into oblivion after his death. The most famous of his operas are Francesca da Rimini after Gabriele D'Annuzio's Tragedy and Guiletta e Romeo after a libretto by Arturo Rossato. Zandonai also created 3 symphonies, concertos and a requiem. His home town has named the international study centre Riccardo Zandonai and the Teatro Zandonai after him.
