Rovereto is a city and comune in Trentino in northern Italy, located in the Vallagarina valley of the Adige River.
It was an ancient fortress town standing at the frontier between the bishopric of Trento – an independent state until 1797 – and the Republic of Venice, and later between Austrian Tyrol and Italy.
Rovereto is east of Riva del Garda (at the north-western corner of Lake Garda) and is the main city of the Vallagarina district.
The town is located at the southern edge of the Italian Alps, near the Dolomites. It is bordered by Monte Cengialto (686m above sea level) to the est. In the past, Rovereto was an important center for the manufacture of silk fabrics. Currently, wine, rubber, chocolate, glasses, and coffee are the town's main businesses.
