An enthralling tour through the historic buildings and the most characteristic streets of the town, immersed in local sounds and traditions.
An unconventional and natural way to discover the tales of a community. In Calavino, on the Megaphone Trail, a walk through the most representative buildings and streets of the village, five original megaphones will immerse adventurers in a unique atmosphere of sounds and knowledge. The contents of the audio tracks will lead them to discover the one hundred year-old history of the Calavino band corps and some local stories, gathered from the recollections and reminiscences of long-standing band members, preserved and passed down from generation to generation only through descriptions of life lived in the community.

Along the route they can then appreciate the beauty of Calavino, a village capable of conveying the spirit of a time divided between the Trentino agricultural economy of feudal origin and the memory of the ancient trades of the peasant civilisation.

Suggestions
By scanning the QR code on the totems, they can listen to the history of Calavino and its hundred-year-old band. The sound is naturally amplified once the phone is inserted into the slot of the megaphone.

Punto di partenza
Calavino - Casa della Musica
Directions
The route starts at the Casa della Musica, located near Parco Nadac, the large public park in the village of Calavino. Near the small tennis court you can park your car and then approach the white marquee outside the Casa della Musica, where the first megaphone is located.  After the first part, you leave through the park gate and immediately turn left, heading towards the church. There, to the left, hidden in the covering of the rectory, is the second totem pole. The trail then continues on the road that runs alongside the parish church dedicated to Maria Assunta and where, on the left, visitors can appreciate the beauty of the war memorial by the sculptor Trentini. Walk into the central part of the village, you reach Piazzetta Roma, heading towards the fountain. There, you enter the 'contrada dei Daniei' and, again on the left, under a small covering, you will find the third megaphone. Continue downhill through the contrada until you cross the provincial road and then immediately turn right towards Mas. Follow the arrows to reach the most hidden place in Calavino, where, among old millstones and ancient mills, the fourth megaphone can be found under the historical coverings. The route then continues back towards the provincial road, which must be skirted to head towards Piazzetta delle Regole. The last megaphone can be found here, in this place full of historical significance. From Piazzetta delle Regole, we then climb as far as the nearby Nadac Park.
