Funivia Malcesine-Monte Baldo

To promote and sustain tourism on Lake Garda, a consortium formed by the Provincial Authority, the Chamber of Commerce of Verona and the Town Council of Malcesine, founded the cableway company known as Azienda Trasporti Funicolari Malcesine - Monte Baldo, in 1955. The company's Board of Directors is particularly sensitive to the needs of the area, and in fact it is formed by representatives from social and economic organisations operating on Lake Garda and within the Mount Baldo community.

The cableway is not merely an attraction to bring in tourists with the aim of keeping the mountain economy alive, it is also a source of employment for specialist workers, and technical and administrative employees, all of whom are needed to operate the system, making it known throughout the world. Not only that, but the cableway is also the basis for the induced activity of specialist firms in the sector as well as for those who - directly or indirectly - work with the hotel and restaurant trade.

The decision to renovate the system, which carried over 6 million passengers in the period 1962 to 2001, was followed by a lengthy and extremely carefully thought-out design stage, based on studies performed by the Faculty of Engineering from the University of Trento. The subsequent choices form the basis of the success that we can all see today.
