Diocesan Museum of Villa Lagarina
The noble Lodron surrounded by art and liturgy in Trentino
Discover the church furnishings and fine tapestries of the Lodron noble family 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 Lodron, a family of nobles whose history is intertwined with Villa Lagarina and its parish. This noble family exercised the right of patronage above the church of Santa Maria Assunta, that represents the 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. The museum is spread over three floors.
Visit to the Diocesan Museum
Begin your visit in the hall on the first floor, all dedicated to the noble Lodron family: you can find here five paintings that represent important personalities of that time, lyturgical clothes, an important decoration with the signs of Lodron’s and Welsperg’s family and a great number of laces that are integral part of the lyturgical heritage of the church.
The second floor hosts a rich collection of ancient textile and jewels and a big archive-closet commissioned by Carlo Ferdinando Lodron in the 1692.
On the third and last floor are displayed the white satin ornament and the gold embroidered taffetas.
