"Trento (Italian: Trento; German: Trient; Latin: Tridentum) is an Italian city located in the Adige river valley in the region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol. It is the capital of the region and of the Autonomous Province of Trento. The township of Trento is geographically very large and encompasses the town center as well as many suburbs of extremely varied geographical and population conditions (from the industrial suburb of Gardolo, just north of the city, to tiny mountain hamlets on the Monte Bondone). Various distinctive suburbs still maintain their traditional identity of rural or mountain villages. The town proper only has 55,197 inhabitants (October 2004). The 2004 population of the entire township is 110,142."
