Hello everyone! Here I am with the third and final post of the visit to the Beseno Castle, in Trentino Alto Adige.

It was almost noon and it was hellishly hot, plus I had to keep the mask under my chin always ready to be raised in case I met people!

ITA

Ciao a tutti! Eccomi con il terzo e ultimo post della visita al Castello Beseno, in Trentino Alto Adige.

Era quasi mezzogiorno e faceva un caldo infernale, in più dovevo tenere la mascherina sempre sotto il mento sempre pronta per essere alzata in caso incontrassi persone!

Fortunately, the time had come to visit the interior of the castle and with those walls at least 1 meter thick, it seemed to fit in large refrigerators.

ITA

Per fortuna era arrivato il momento di visitare gli interni del castello e con quei muri spessi almeno 1 metro sembrava ddi entrare in grandi frigoriferi.

In the first area, where the armor was, it surprised me how short the inhabitants were!

To my eye I think the average height was 150 cm for a man.

ITA

Nella prima area, dove c'erano le armature, mi ha sorpreso quanto fossero di statura bassa gli abitanti!

Ad occhio credo la statura media fosse di 150 cm per un uomo.

I wonder how they managed to move with agility in battle wearing all that iron!

ITA

Mi chiedo come facessero a muoversi con agilità in battaglia indossando tutto quel ferro!

In the next room there was a small exhibition of vintage photos.

ITA

Nella stanza successiva c'era una piccola mostra di foto d'epoca.

Here is a group of ladies visiting the castle, these photos are very fascinating.
Looking at them I seem to perceive the feeling and the joyful situation of that trip.

ITA

Ecco un gruppo di signore in visita al castello, queste foto le trodo molto affascinanti.
Guardandole mi sembra di percepire il sentimento e la situazione gioiosa di quella trasferta.

Look at this photo with the subjects all posing in the bow, all dressed as real gentlemen, as was used then.

The ladies remind me of the protagonist of the film Mary Poppins.

ITA

Guardate questa foto con i soggetti tutti in posa sutto l'arco, tutti vestiti da veri signori, come si usava allora.

Le signore mi ricordano la protagonista del film Mary Poppins.

I also really like this shot, the clothes perfectly match the place and the time.

There was good taste in dressing, a quality that perhaps has been a bit lost with the years to come...

ITA

Anche questo scatto mi piace molto, gli abiti si abbinano perfettamente al luogo e all'epoca.

Nel vestire c'era buon gusto, qualità che forse si è andata un po' persa con gli anni a venire...

P1490432.jpg

Here is another room, really interesting.

Here was the main oven of the castle, where bread was baked.

ITA

Ecco un'altra stanza, davvero interessante.

Qui c'era il forno principale del castello, dove veniva cotto il pane.

P1490434.jpg

In an adjacent room there were other armor but what I found really interesting is a shield rich in decorations and well preserved.

ITA

In una stanza adiacente c'erano altre armature ma quello che ho trovato davvero interessante è uno scudo ricco di decorazioni e ben conservato.

P1490441.jpg

The next room was the armory, to get there we had to suck outside and follow the directions of the guides...

ITA

La stanza successiva era l'armeria, per arrivarci dovevamo sucire all'aperto e seguire le indicazioni delle guide...

P1490443.jpg

I liked this setup very much.

The deployment of the first line, with armor and weapons.

It gave a greater sense of what a group of soldiers in formation might look like.

ITA

Questo allestimento mi è piaciuto molto.

Lo schieramento della prima linea, con le armature e le armi.

Dava una maggiore sensazione di come poteva essere un gruppo di soldati in formazione.

P1490444.jpg

There were also corsets, crossbows, spears, and in a final room a sort of well where visitors, I don't know why, throw coins.

ITA

C'erano anche corsetti, balestre, lance, e in una stanza finale una sorta di pozzo dove, i visitatori, non so perchè, lanciano le monete.

P1490446.jpg

P1490448.jpg

Continuing the visit to the upper floor, firearms were exposed.

ITA

Procedendo la visita al piano superiore erano esposto le armi da fuoco.

P1490452.jpg

P1490453.jpg

There was also an interactive didactic projection on a three-dimensional model, but I usually get bored early to watch digital content if I find myself personally in that place.

I prefer to have direct experiences and not waste even a second.

ITA

C'era anche una proiezione didattica interattiva su un plastico tridimensionale, ma io di solito mi annoio presto a guardare contenuti digitali se mi trovo in prima persona in quel luogo.

Preferisco fare esperienze dirette e non sprecare neanche un secondo.

P1490456.jpg

In the next room, to the surprise of those present, there was a representation of a horse and a rider who were drowning in the mud.

ITA

Nella stanza successiva con sorpresa dei presenti c'era la rappresentazione di un cavallo e un cavaliere che stavano annegando nel fango.

P1490457.jpg

The armor was useful to protect the knights but they were very heavy and being able to save yourself from drowning in water or mud can be an impossible task.

ITA

Le armature erano utili per proteggere i cavalieri ma erano molto pesanti e riuscire a salvarsi dall'annegare nell'acqua o fango può essere un'impresa impossibile.

P1490459.jpg

P1490460.jpg

We then went back outside and continued the visit by climbing an observation point opposite the main entrance to the castle.

ITA

Successivamente tornati all'esterno e abbiamo proseguito la visita salendo un punto di osservazione opposto all'entrata principale del castello.

P1490461.jpg

And there was to be expected! An incredible sight!

ITA

E c'era da spettarselo! Una vista incredibile!

P1490468.jpg

P1490470.jpg

P1490472.jpg

P1490473.jpg

P1490474.jpg

After going through the walls we went down we headed for the exit...it was late and we were madly hungry!

ITA

Dopo aver percorso la cinta muraria siamo scesi ci siamo diretti verso l'uscita...era tardi e avevamo una fame pazzesca!

P1490475.jpg

P1490476.jpg

In a small room there was a map with all the castles in Trentino Alto Adige marked out, they are many, about 300!
It is the region of Italy with the greatest number of castles!

ITA

In una piccola stanzina c'era una cartina con segnalati tutti i castelli del Trentino Alto Adige, sono tantissimi, circa 300!
E' la regione d'Italia con maggior numero di castelli!

P1490477.jpg

P1490478.jpg

To get out of the castle we walked the lane, a direct corridor that guaranteed rapid movements from one part of the castle to the other.

ITA

Per uscire dal castello abbiamo percorso la lizza, un corridoio diretto che garantiva spostamenti rapidi da una parte all'altra del castello.

P1490481.jpg

P1490483.jpg

It was a tiring but at the same time super interesting visit that I hadn't expected but it was worth it!

ITA

E' stata una visita stancante, ma allo stesso tempo super interessante che non avevo previsto, ma ne è valsa davvero la pena!
