Home to a part of the Museo Diocesano Tridentino (Diocesal Museum of Trentino)
Palazzo Libera was built in the mid seventeenth century by Don Antonio, archpriest of Villa Lagarina and member of the powerful Gasperini family from Monte Vineato. The building subsequently passed to the Libera family and during the Great War was transformed into an Austrian military hospital.
The main floor has a spacious living room with coffered ceiling and frescoed walls, while the other rooms are decorated with stuccos and two monumental majolica oil stoves. Outside is a beautiful garden with paths and fountains.
Today it is property of the municipality of Villa Lagarina which has completely restored it and furnished it as a museum (it is home to a part of the Museo Diocesano Tridentino) and exhibition space in which contemporary art exhibitions are regularly held.
One room is dedicated to the architect Adalberto Libera.
From 05 August 2022 to 30 October 2022, the work ‘Il bacio’ (The Kiss) by Roberto Ferri, dedicated to the love between Dante and Beatrice, is on display at Palazzo Libera. The palace remains open to the public to admire the work from Friday to Sunday from 10.00 to 12.00 and from 16.00 to 19.00.
