Trento is a city in the northern regions of Italy that sits on the River Adige and is nestled within the Adige River Valley. As the capital of the Trentino region, the city has a population of 117,000 and is considered to be one of the top Italian cities in terms of quality of life and the environment. While there's no doubt you're in Italy, Trento also has its share of Austrian influence. Set in a wide glacial valley guarded by the crenellated peaks of the Brenta Dolomites, amid a patchwork of vineyards and apple orchards, Trento is a perfect jumping-off point for hiking, skiing or wine tasting.

We think that Trento might be one of the most underrated cities in Italy, and a quick Google search will show you why. Contrasting starkly from the rocky Mediterranean coast, Trento's lush greenery will make you feel like you are living in a fairytale. Students traveling to Trento will undoubtedly enjoy their stay between Dolomites and Garda Lake and those with an interest in early-modern history will also find Trento fascinating: the Council of Trent convened here in the 16th century, during the tumultuous years of the Counter-Reformation, dishing out far-reaching condemnations to uppity Protestants.
“Santa Chiara” hospital, located in the south of Trento, is part of APSS (the Public Healthcare Trust of the Autonomous Province of Trento, running 4 large healthcare districts and 7 hospitals). Santa Chiara is composed of several buildings: the stellar body "V" (seven floors), the inpatient clinic (nine floors), the oncological department (three floors) and the administrative building. The renovation of Santa Chiara hospital, characterized by a remarkable technical complexity, has included the realization of new electrical and mechanical plants, the addition of the toilet in all the patients rooms, the redistribution of beds, the realization of new operating rooms, the increase of the number of surgeries, and the improvement of paths. The whole design approach has aimed to guarantee the continuity of service ensuring the highest level of reliability.

Located just to the north of Trento, visiting the Dolomites is a must; many student recognize they may never be in this area of the world again, and this view is too good to pass up.
