Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

For this week’s Photo Challenge, dedicated to inside, I’m going to interpret this as inside the past, but not only …

When you live in Italy, you live in the past a lot.  Old architecture from the Colosseum to a whole city like Venice…but even in small historically insignificant towns, which is the norm for Trentino, we have our relics.  From castles to … train stations.

The first project to add Riva del Garda to Rovereto was created in 1870, but it was only in 1889 that the Vienese government decided to give the ok for the building of 24.2 kilometers of railway.  The original 1889 plan created by engineer Rudolf Stummer Ritter von Traunfels was to include Arco, Dro and go all the way to Sarca, but was never completed.  Railway service between Riva del Garda and Mori opened for business on 28 January 1891. By that time Stummer had sold his project rights  to a banking project in Bolzano under the name of Lokalbahn Mori-Arco-Riva, the head of the bank was Sigismund Schwarz, who also participated and financed other similar projects throughout Trentino.

During the first World War, the tracks were damaged.  The railway in 1918 passed under the control of the Italian Railway company, since Trentino- Alto Adige was ceded to Italy by the Austrians at the end of the conflict.  An extension was projected to Rovereto in 1922.  In 1924 the extension was added and so, Riva del Garda was connected to the National railway route.  The municipality of Rovereto bought out the shares for the railway and in 1925 officially opened for service.  Unfortunately, the railway service never earned much money.  There was a project to pass from steam engines to electric engines, but the project never got off the ground.  In 1933, due to the growing car industry, a bus service was added to the train service and on the 21st of October, 1936 the station was closed…the tracks eventually being pulled up.

The station is open today for tourists … but there’s also a travel agency and a caffè restaurant open in the evenings.

Here’s what the station looks like from the back:
