“The city of Trento” is a watercolour of 1495 by Albrecht Durer and it is kept at the Kunsthalle Bremen, in Bremen, Germany. In this way, the artist from Nuremberg describes his aesthetic approach to the naturalistic dimension: “Each part must be executed with the utmost diligence possible in the smallest things as in the larger ones. Therefore, scrupulously observe nature, stick to it and do not leave it arbitrarily”. In 1494 he reached Italy to update himself with what happened in Venice, and in our country in general, from a training point of view. It is rare at that time that a young artist travels for the desire to improve and update himself: this is one of the many reasons why he is considered the greatest representative of the German Renaissance; he travels a lot and brings modernity to the art of northern Europe, bringing together in his works characteristics of Italian and Flemish painting. Returning to his homeland in 1495 he focused on Lake Garda and in Trento, the subject of this canvas. The play of colours and changes in tone as the light changes are well reproduced; he does not idealize nature and landscape is the protagonist because it has a soul. Dürer observes reality and relies on his own eyes to describe it: we could call it "the first Caravaggio". He identifies himself with the traveller and leaves us the memory of what he sees in his works, he leaves us with a note of travel, contrary to any form of idealization.
