Trento was an important stop on the Roman road that linked Innsbruck and the lands that now compose western Austria to the rest of Italy proper, but Trento is probably most known for its role during the Counter-Reformation and as a site of extensive religious violence. The most notable incident occurred on the eve of Good Friday in 1475 when the son of a powerful anti-Semitic preacher disappeared. While the specifics of the boy's disappearance are not known, the consequences certainly are; fifteen Jewish members of the community, including their spiritual leader, were tortured and burned at the stake. The entire Jewish population of Trento was sentenced to death by a local religious court before the Pope intervened on their behalf. Additionally, the Council of Trent was held in Trento during the 16th century, setting the Counter-Reformation in motion. Visitors to Trento can tour various historic sites and buildings where meetings were held during the council. These can be easily visited by car or via private chauffeur in Trento. Trento was also briefly home to Benito Mussolini - his former apartment can be toured during your visit.
