Adige - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (334 words)
Adige (Italian; Etsch in German) is a river with its source in the region of South Tyrol, Italy.
The Adige then runs eastbound through the Vinschgau-Val Venosta to Meran-Merano where it is met by the Passeier-Passirio river from the north.
The Adige then crosses Trentino and later Veneto, flowing past the city of Verona and the towns of Rovereto and Adria through the Lagarina valley and the north-eastern part of the Po plain into the Adriatic sea.
Trentino - Alto Adige (2644 words)
Directly south, between the Merano dip and the Rolle Pass, stretch the porphyric Alto Adige plateau and gentle hills that contrast with the rugged mountains to the north.
With the exception of the Monzoni group and the Adamello-Presanella and Cima d'Asta massifs, the whole south of the region is Mesozoic and Cenozoic rock mainly dolomitic and calcareous.
In contrast, in Alto Adige people are strongly attached to the land and an unusual law of inheritance and farm ownership (the maso chiuso) meaning that land cannot be split up among heirs but passes in its entirety to the eldest son, absolute head of a family-run farm, tends to reduce population drift.
