A strip of inhabited territory, with its precious treasures of history and culture, dominated by an expanse of green woods crowned by the peaks of the Brenta. It is Ville d’Anaunia, Municipality born in 2016 from the merger – wanted by the citizens – of the administrative realities of Nanno, Tassullo and Tuenno.
Tuenno is the most populous hamlet and gateway to the splendid Val di Tovel.
Portolo is the smaller one, overlooking the Noce river. Then there are Campo, Nanno, Pavillo, Rallo, Sanzenone and Tassullo. These are the eight “Ville” (villages) in the heart of the Val di Non. Here the economy is based on fruit growing.
There are several reasons that make Ville d’Anaunia unique. One of them is the alpine Lake Tovel in the northern sector of the Brenta Group. This naturalistic area is accessible in summer and autumn by the sustainable mobility service. It aims to remove traffic to ensure tranquility and respect for the area. Hiking enthusiasts can also enjoy this precious part of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park through mountain bike trails.
Val Nana and the malghe
Natural amphitheater and privileged place for the observation of geological phenomena is the Val Nana. An extensive mountain pasture lying between 2,100 and 2,400 meters a.s.l. Then there are the Tassulla, Nana, Tuena, Pradedont and Culmei mountain huts (malghe). With their pastures they favor the conservation of the natural environment and are fundamental support points for those who like to experience the mountains. Returning to the valley, the obligatory stop is the Santa Giustina dam, built in 1951. A mighty dam measuring 152.50 meters, built to exploit the water course for hydroelectric purposes. A must is also a visit to Castel Valer, with its octagonal tower that dominates Campo and Tassullo. And then Castel Nanno, where in the seventeenth century three witches were set on fire after being condemned by the Holy Inquisition.
Art lovers can set off on a small journey into the sacred art of the Baschenis brothers in the little churches of Santa Lucia (Campo) San Paolo (Pavillo), Immacolata (Sanzenone), Santi Fabiano and Sebastiano (Nanno) and San Vigilio (Tassullo). Finally, don’t forget the prestigious Palazzo Pilati, seat of the municipal council.
