Canale di Tenno (or Villa Canale) is one of the four villages that make up Ville del Monte, the largest fraction of the municipality of Tenno, in Trentino. In addition to Canale, there are Villa Pastoedo, Villa Sant'Antonio and Villa Calvola. Canale is a small medieval village near Lake Garda, on the road connecting the Lake to the Giudicarie. The first document attesting its existence dates back to the year 1211. Today the village still preserves the original urbanistic plan, made up of four streets that converge into the square, a large number of stone houses and the typical wrapped, which connect the houses to each other. Some of these houses are decorated with frescoes, mostly modern, the most valuable of which is the work of the painter Gianni Longinotti, that decorates the facade of his house.

Partially abandoned after World War I, the village was slowly reborn after World War II. The painter Giacomo Vittone, who fell in love with this village, spent many years of his life on Lake Garda and immortalized Canale in several of his works. The suburb of Canale di Tenno continued to charm other artists, such as Gianni Lara, but also travellers and foreign tourists slowly. Today the village is living a season of revival through tourism, attracted by the nearby Lake Tenno and its cultural offer. There is indeed a small but rich Museum with the tools of farm life and the House of artists, dedicated to the painter Giacomo Vittone. Just off Canale, on the road to Villa Calvola, a great monument that plays four men who talk, said "The vicinie", recalls the management of common interest through local "rules", established by the head of the family.
