The territory of Pedemonte occupies the northernmost part of the Astico valley. It borders with the Trentino region and still preserves the mark of its culture, in its buildings and in the customs and language of its population, having been, up until 1918, part of the South Tyrol in the Hapsburg Empire. The municipality is composed of a number of villages which, in their unspoilt centres, such as the eighteenth century Scalzeri, offer glimpses of picturesque images which transform when one turns into an alleyway, or which, when taking a passageway, one exits into a small courtyard to be overwhelmed by the cascades of green and red geraniums hanging from the windows and galleries. In Pedemonte, a visit to the villa Santa Sofia is recommended; it was built in 1565 by Andrea Palladio under the commission of Marcantonio Serčgo who had married Ginevra Alighieri, a descendent of Dante's.
