APT Terme di Comano-Dolomiti di Brenta is the local tourist board, organized as a cooperative society. It counts around 250 members, who represent all the public and private entities in the valley (municipalities, other public entities such as the Istituto Comprensivo and the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park, the company Terme di Comano, hospitality operators, main producers often represented by cooperatives, artisans, cultural and leisure associations). APT works for the local tourism development, creating new tourism proposals, taking care of information, welcome and marketing activities. The workforce consists of 9 people.
The valley is an open-air museum named «Ecomuseo della Judicaria, dalle Dolomiti al Garda». In cooperation with APT (tourist board) , the cooperative develops the historical and cultural heritage, through events, excursions and activities such as «Viaggi dell’Emozione», special itineraries which lead the participants «back in the past». During the tourist season (form April to October) about 10 thousand visitors take part in the cultural activities.
The valley also offers the possibility to enjoy a cultural holiday: ancients villages where the country tradition has been unchanged over time, castles, churches and archaeological sites (like for example stilts of Fiavé, UNESCO World Heritage).
All these places are surrounded by forests, meadows and mountains (we are at foot of the Dolomites, UNESCO World Heritage) and visitors can enjoy them by walking or cycling. The valley is part of the Natural Park Adamello Brenta, the largest in the Region.
The peculiarity of the territory is the water of Terme di Comano, unique in Europe and suitable to cure skin diseases.
How we promote cooperatives’ values and culture
APT Terme di Comano promotes the history, culture and values of cooperatives through "Viaggio dell'Emozione" called "The roots of Cooperation", an itinerary covering the most significant places in which Don Lorenzo Guetti, founder of the "Movimento Cooperativistico Trentino", worked. This proposal allows visitors to discover the historical context, the places and the socio-economic situation in which cooperation developed. Moreover it allows to meditate on the modernity of Don Lorenzo Guetti's message. "Viaggio dell'Emozione" is completed with a visit to a local cooperative, to know how a cooperative everyday reality works.
