Revò, famous for its wine production and old aqueduct
Revò stretches between Pescara and Novella torrents, as a natural terrace over Lake Santa Giustina and the Non valley (Valle di Non). Recognized for its historical significance as convergence point of several crucial roads, as the Roman Road and another one called Regai (from Dermulo), Revò is the cultural centre of the Terza Sponda – Third Bank – which was so-called after the creation of Lake Santa Giustina (Lago di Santa Giustina). Revò is well-known for the cultivation of local vines of Groppello, used to manufacture a famous type of wine called Groppello di Revò.
This town boasts the oldest aqueduct of the valley, built after a disastrous famine in 1778 and fed by the Pescara torrent. Its urban layout has preserved its traditional features. Revò can be divided in three parts: upper, middle and lower town.
Clustered houses crossed by hallways make up the upper part of the town, called colomel, while the lower part is called frona and the middle part piazza. Here you will find houses in Oltradige Atesino style, dating back to the sixteenth and seventeenth century. St Stephen's Parish Church is located off-centre with respect to the town, in an elevated position.
The cultural centre of the Terza Sponda, Revò is renowned for its Groppello wine and its Casa Campia
Revò is the cultural centre of the Terza Sponda - "Three Banks", so called after the formation of Lake Santa Giustina - and stretches out between the torrents of Pescara and Novella. In the past the town's relevance resulted from two roads: the Roman road, and the Regai road, which used to take travellers to Dermulo - but which was later submerged by the Santa Giustina hydroelectric reservoir.
The town looks southwards as a sort of balcony overlooking both the lake and the Val di Non. Local vines are grown on steep slopes, which stretch down towards the lake and are used to manifacture a Trentino wine called Groppello di Revò.
The town's origins are Roman, as proved by epigraphs and other archaeological objects discovered here. It also boasts the oldest communal irrigation waterworks of the valley. The town's urban layout has kept its traditional features. The highest part of Revò is called Colomel, and features clustered houses criss-crossed by passageways. The lower part of the town is known as Frona, while its middle part as Piazza. A number of beautiful 16th - 17th century residences built according to a unique style known as "d'Oltradige Atesino" are featured here. Of the many beautiful palaces the town boasts, the striking Casa Campia is definitely worth a visit.
The parish church of S. Stefano stands majestically in a slightly off-centre position with respect to the town.
