Lying in the Tesino basin, on the southern slopes of Mount Silana in the heart of Valsugana, the village of Pieve Tesino is famous for being the birthplace of the famous statesman Alcide De Gasperi, founding father of the European Union. The village, in addition to its welcoming centre, is known as a starting point for excursions and walks. To the north, in fact, stands the granite massif of Cima D'Asta (2847m), a sought-after destination for mountaineers and mountain enthusiasts who walk the famous 'Alta Via del Granito'. What profoundly marked the history of Pieve and Tesino were the wandering street vendors who, with their artistic prints, reached the most disparate corners of the world, setting up shops and also becoming publishers. Today, the "Per Via, Museo Tesino delle Stampe e dell'Ambulantato" collects the testimonies of that epic.
