Tridentine Diocesan Museum
The noble Lodron surrounded by art and liturgy in Trentino
Discover the church furnishings and fine tapestries of the parish of Villa Lagarina in the halls of the eighteenth century Palazzo Libera.
Palazzo Libera of Villa Lagarina houses a section of the Museo Diocesano Tridentino.
The precious heritage of art and liturgy belonged to the Londron, a family of nobles whose history is intertwined with Villa Lagarina and its parish. Paride, its most illustrious exponent, became archbishop of Salzburg in the early Seventeenth century; he also founded its university and renovated its cathedral, appointing specialized workers from Vallagarina. They used the same marble from Castione that was also used for the construction of the parish of the Villa.
Works of art and church furnishings witness the importance of the church of Santa Maria Assunta, a symbol of the political and religious power of the counts of Lodron. Throughout the centuries various members of the noble family decorated the church with exquisite furnishings, which today are displayed in the halls of Palazzo Libera.
