Pinacoteca: Testimonianze figurative

Permanent exhibition: where art, culture and landscape come together

The MAG Museo Alto Garda is comprised of the Museum of Riva del Garda, which looks directly onto the lake itself, and the G. Segantini City Gallery in Arco, standing at the foot of the Castle Mount which dominates the entire Sarca valley.In the two venues of the MAG Museo Alto Garda, history, archaeology, landscape, art and the contemporary world converse via a mutual exchange to offer an approach which valorises our own heritage with the aim of better interpreting both the present and the future.

The Rocca of Riva del Garda, an ancient medieval castle standing on the lakeside, is home to the headquarters of Museum and the Riva venue of the MAG Museo Alto Garda, with its three permanent sections, spaces for temporary exhibitions, and the workshop itinerary known as INvento, designed for younger visitors and their families.

The Picture Gallery features landscapes painted by those 19th-century painters struck by the beauty of the marvellous natural views of the Garda area, featuring works of artists such as Pietro Ricchi, Vincenzo Vela and Francesco Hayez.

In the section dedicated to Archaeology, the famous stele statues are to be found, precious findings of international interest, dating back to the Copper Age.

The History section portrays the past of Riva del Garda and the Lower Sarca area in general, characterised by the passage of various conquerors, such as the Veronese, the Milanese and the Venetians, right up to the golden period in which Riva del Garda became a tourist resort for illustrious guests, such as Thomas Mann and Franz Kafka. This section ends with the events related to the first and second world war.

Throughout the year, the Museum also dedicates much space to temporary exhibitions and research projects, aimed at offering both a contemporary interpretation of the historic and artistic heritage in the Museum’s possession and views of the landscape and contemporary culture.
