Mountain CowI want to go to the Trentino-Alto Adige region of Italy.  The autonomous region is in the far north bordered by Austria to the north, Switzerland to the northwest, and two regions of Italy, Lombardia on its west and Veneto in the south.  It's a mountainous area where the residents mainly speak Italian in Trentino and German in the Alto Adige.  I need (notice the verb used) to go there and watch the bruno alpina and grigio alpina cows.  I need to listen to the sound of their bells as they wander the mountain pastureland.  I need to speak with their custodians, and taste the cheeses made from their milk during the short summer grazing season.  I need to wash those cheeses down with some pinot bianco.
