Located at the center of the Rendena Valley, Spiazzo has a relatively recent administrative history, being founded only in 1928 by the merge of three existing municipalities (Borzago, Fisto and Mortaso). Its origins, however, are linked to a shrine dedicated to San Vigilio, martyred in 405, murdered in the nearby, during his last missionary journey, from the pagan population, when the bishop destroyed their worship stele dedicated to the god Saturn.
During the Middle Ages, the town submitted the domain of the Prince Bishop of Trento, who granted the local inhabitants a certain autonomy from the feudal servitude.
Present in the area are several sports facilities, such as: foot paths and mountain bike trails. Its proximity to the ski resorts of Pinzolo and Madonna di Campiglio, make this resort the ideal destination for lovers of Winter sports and trekking fans.
