Encyclopedia > Andalo

Andalo is a comune in the autonomous province of Trento in Italy: according to a 2001 census, the village has 1.014 inhabitants. Trento (Italian: Provincia autonoma di Trento, German: Autonome Provinz Trient) is an autonomous province in the autonomous Trentino-South Tyrol region of Italy. ...


The town lies on the Brenta-Paganella plateau, between the mountains called Piz Galin (ft 8,011 - mt 2442) and Paganella (ft 6,971 – mt 2125) and its territory is part of the Adamello-Brenta natural park.


The village was founded in the Middle Ages and used to be divided into 13 “masi” (Bortolon, Cadin, Casanova, Clamer, Dos, Fovo, Grezzi, Melchiori, Monech, Pegorar, Perli, Pont and Toscana), but when the town got bigger they united and this division practically doesn’t exist anymore.


During the second part of the 20th century the village became one of the most famous touristic resorts in its province, mainly due to its skiing facilities.


The village's economy used to be based on agricolture but, according to a 2001 census, there are only 5 individuals working in this field right now. Tourism, both during summer and winter is the main economic factor in Andalo (as it is in the surrounding towns), mainly due to its position next to the Dolomites.
