Geography
Trentino-Alto Adige comprises the two historic provinces of Trentino and Bolzano. It is an autonomous region with a special statute recognizing the rights of the resident ethnic groups. Trentino-Alto Adige borders Austria, to the north, Switzerland to the north-west, Lombardy to the west and Veneto to the south. The territory is almost completely mountainous: the highest peak is Mount Ortles-Cevedale (c 4,000 m.). Trentino-Alto Adige is drained by several watercourses and lakes. The most relevant rivers are Adige, Isarco, Brenta and Passirio. In the region is the extreme northern tip of Lake Garda, the widest in Italy. Other smaller lakes of glacial origins are Lake Molveno, Lake Ledro, Lake Levico and Lake Caldonazzo.
