The Magnifica Comunità di Fiemme

The Palace of the Magnifica Comunità di Fiemme

The Magnifica Comunità di Fiemme, a thousand-year old institution, is based in Cavalese, in a historical palace that hosts an art gallery, a museum and an archive of manuscripts and texts of great historic importance.

The Magnifica’s history dates back to 1.111. In the Middle Ages, the Princes-Bishops of Trento ordered to build the palace as a location of their great Vicars and summer residence. Since 1850 this palace, built in the 14th century, has hosted the Magnifica Comunità di Fiemme.
The complicated renovation works on the building gave back to the palace its ancient splendor. The suffused illumination in the museum and art gallery creates a mysterious atmosphere, casting some bright light here and there on the frescos and paintings, enhancing their beauty. Hanging on the walls, about 150 masterpieces by the Pictorial School of Fiemme.

In the prisons, visitors can grab torches to light up the writings made by prisoners. In these cruel cells in the 1500s were also imprisoned the so-called witches of Cavalese.
