The house is a building realized in 1700 in a small village called Denno and characterized by small streets and squares with their fountains.
It is not only a house but an "ansitz" if we would like to use the typi-cal term in Tyrol. This means that is an ancient building that enclosed inside its door a small world with a big garden for vegetables, the stables for animals, the basement for conserving wine and sausages.
In fact when you enter into the big door under the typical arc of stones you enter into a small and quit castle with a garden and a basement with the typical ceiling of crossing arcs.
Then there is the beautiful hall at the first floor with a "bifora", double lancet window, and decorations of sto-nes around the doors.
The house have not been changed by interventions that could change its identity, so it maintains again all the value of the time that could remem-ber again a precious past.
The house is located in the quite ancient centre of the village called Denno in Val di Non, Trentino, Italia, north from Verona.
Denno is a very ancient village, founded in the Roman age. So it is rich of ancient buildings, and wonderful is the small S.Pietro church of the XIII with the decorations realized by Giovanni and Battista Baschenis.
The location of the village is very good: it is in the south part of the valley, half an hour from Trento, on a sunny and flat land, with the view of the mountains of the Gruppo del Brenta -the first that receive the sun in the morning- and with the view of the Thun Castle.
The village is in the province of Trento, in the middle between Mezzo-lombardo and Cles. The inhabitants are 1157 and the village is at 429 meters on the sea level.
The apple trees
The village is rounded by apple trees that characterize all the south and central part of the valley. In Spring time the apple trees are blossomed and when the white flowers are open the valley becomes an unique landscape of flowers everywhere!
