The hub of Italian theater: Dro
Dro’s architectural style is typical of the upper part of Lago di Garda, with distinctive portals, arches, medieval towers and irregular street patterns. Its atmosphere seems untouched by the passing of time. Typical town in the valley of River Sarca, Dro is particularly renowned for the production of Vin Santo and plums. Its landscape is characterized by a distinctive glacial phenomenon called marocche, actually the largest expanse to be found in Europe. Marocche is a vast mass of rocks with huge blocks, which gives the area a stunning desert-like aspect. Dro is one of the most ancient towns in the valley of River Sarca, with a number of shrines, including the deconsecrated church of S.S. Sisinio, Martirio and Alessandro, the Roman bridge of Ceniga and the Baroque Church of St Antonio. For almost thirty years Dro has been hosting Drodesera Theater Festival, one of the most important theater summer events. Theater activity is very vibrant in Dro, whose Drodesera Fies festival was awarded as best festival in 2007 by Associazione Nazionale Critici di Teatro. The shows are held in the hydroelectric power station in Fies, which is one of the most remarkable examples of industrial architecture in the area. Dro is an excellent location for hiking and mountain-biking, as well as climbing and free-climbing.
The small and ancient town of Dro. The driving force behind Italian theatre
The town's architectural style is typical of the Alto Garda area: age-old houses, traditional portals, tiny arches, medieval towers and irregular alleyways. Even its atmosphere looks untouched by time. Dro is typical of the Sarca River Valley and is famous for its plums as well as for its traditional "Vino Santo". Its landscape is extremely interesting, both from a morphological and from an environmental point of view, as it is moulded by a glacial phenomenon amongst the largest and most extensive to be found in Europe, called "Marocche", i.e. a chaotic mass of rocks and blocks of gigantic proportions that cover the valley floor. The Marocche have had a striking effect on the terrain, making it somewhat look like a desert where vegetation has only been partly able to grow. Dro is one of the most ancient communities in the Sarca valley and features many historical landmarks such as the ancient, deconsecrated church of S.S. Sisinio, Martirio and Alessandro, the Baroque Church of S. Antonio and the Roman bridge of Ceniga. The town has also been hosting the Drodesera Festival for almost thirty years now. This is one of the most popular summer festivals held in Italy, making Dro one of the driving forces behind Italian theatre («Drodesera Fies» was the winner of the best festival 2007 prize awarded by the Associazione Nazionale Critici di Teatro [National Association of Theatre Critics]). A rich selection of artistic performances can be enjoyed amongst the charming spaces of the Fies Hydroelectric Power Plant - one of the most important pieces of industrial architecture in the region.Several excursions and walks can be picked at both on foot and by mountain bike. Furthermore, this natural paradise is also renowned for its rocky walls, which are especially good for both climbing and free-climbing.
