We discovered them on the desk within the crimson of carne salada, some of the well-known Trentino dishes (which we like and which in Garda Trentino is a form of faith) and within the brown of bread and pasta manufactured from molche, the dough fashioned by the residue of processing of olive oil, which as soon as tried create absolute dependancy.
Within the blue of the sky and within the milky white of the clouds that may be admired from the tower of fort of Drena, within the emerald inexperienced of Tenno lake and within the intense blue of the water of the Varone waterfall.
