Hidden Trento 900 - The city at the time of fascism

Hidden Trento 900 is a public history and digital humanities project, supported by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto (CARITRO) and created in collaboration with Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering of the University of Trento, Fondazione Museo Storico del Trentino, Soprintendenza per i beni e le attività culturali
(Provincia autonoma di Trento).
The Hidden Trento app is part of the European family of History City Apps, is available in digital stores with four paths dedicated to history of the city in the modern age and has applications in the educational, museum and tourist fields. With this project the Hidden Trento app offers a new journey through the history of Trento’s 20th-century, particularly at the time of fascism. The digital platform implements a new georeferenced historical map of the city and offers a route in three languages to discover unpublished details in the monumental, urban and historical-artistic fields. During the walking tour, the user will be able to listen and read insights on specific topics and learn about the collections city museums (Video).
The project was born in the wake of a solid tradition of research on fascism in Trentino and on urban transformations of the city during the regimen. The cartographic sources and the archive documentation underlying the urban walking tour (diaries, letters, newspaper articles and city news) will allow an immersive and guided experience in the main urban spaces affected by architectural transformations during fascism (railway station, Raffaello Sanzio school, Piazza Littorio, new post office building).
