What does the symbol # lead you think? Someone will immediately think about the checkmate move from the chess notation, while for others it will bring to mind the number theory. But as the very first thing, everybody thinks about a word which is part of our everyday language at this point, in the most technological and social era that has ever existed: hashtag. And together with it, the thousands of connections it creates, binding people, places or events which are physically far one from the other, but that remain accessible thanks to an Internet connection and a device like a smartphone or laptop.
Can you imagine an endless social box, where everyone who uses the #gardatrentino hashtag could be automatically sent to the social wall, being in this way the witness of all the experiences, emotions and moments lived in Garda Trentino?
In this way, the virtual world becomes a happy gathering and sharing place, where the mutual exchange of experiences and evidences is possible. All these things convey an essential message: there are many ways to live a place, and find them out through different perspectives enhances and increases our natural attitude towards curiosity. Tweets, pics, videos, short tales… everything merges into the social wall, narrating Garda Trentino as it was a book. And you? What about you? Why don’t you start using our hashtag and sharing your funny, ironical, happy and cheerful moments lived on the lake shores with us all?

Not only the social wall, but also an innovative webcam! That is, a motorised webcam that enables the users to have access to the traditional “snap-shots”, but also short HD streaming videos, 360-degree views, weather forecasts and data… everything live, of course! It looks like being already on the lake shores sipping a spritz!
