Founded in 1190 by Raimondo as a monastery – hospice in expiation of his sins for assistance to the traveler, it grew quickly and around 1450, at the height of its history, came to have 20 monks and 5 nuns.
Then the decline until 1868 when the entrepreneur Giovanni Battista Righi bought the ruins of what remained to found the “Alpine Plant”, the first modern hotel and Madonna di Campiglio was reborn thanks to the “old road”, the first road that united Madonna di Campiglio with the rest of the world, built by Giovanni Battista Righi between 1874 and 1875.
The Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known as Sissi
Giovanni Battista Righi was succeeded by Franz Josef Oesterreicher who, at the end of the nineteenth century, made Madonna di Campiglio the privileged destination of the European and Habsburg aristocracy, so much so that even the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known as Sissi, spent two periods of vacation at the Hotel des Alpes by renting the two upper floors and, in the second vacation, she was joined by her husband, the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph.
Also in those years, in 1910, a group of English skiers went up the nearby Monte Spinale to verify the skiing characteristics.
But only after 1930, with the construction of the current state road that made it possible to reach Madonna di Campiglio even in the cold months, did it begin to establish itself as an important location for winter tourism and, in the 1950s, it became a consolidated reality.
Madonna di Campiglio is also home to the “3Tre” (“three races in Trentino”) one of the oldest ski races in Europe, founded in 1949.
