Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol is a hinterland of sorts. As the northernmost region of Italy, it’s a between kind of place—not quite Italian, not quite Austrian, either. Even the name, Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, is a bit of a pluralistic mouthful (I’ll call it Trentino from now on, as most Italians do, anyway).
You might say Trentino is a region on the cusp. Hey look, there’s more!
