Museo Castello del Buonconsiglio

Trentino's historical and cultural heritage

Museo Castello del Buonconsiglio

The Castello del Buonconsiglio Museum - Monuments and Private Collections consists of four venues located throughout the Autonomous Province of Trento.
The Castello del Buonconsiglio is perched on the rocky hill right against the 13th centuries walls of Trento. Its oldest section, called Castelvecchio, dates back to the first half of the 13th century and used to be the community's meeting place. Legend has it that the name comes from the merging of "malconsey", a vernacular corruption of the Latin term "malleus" - the hammer used to strike and ring a bell - and "consilii", namely "of the Council". Over the centuries, the name then turned into "Buonconsiglio". Today it also hosts the Museum of Monuments and Private Collections, departments of archaeology, ancient, Medieval and modern art.
In addition to the Library specialized in History of Fine Arts, the castle houses a rich Photographic Archive featuring about 26,000 negatives and 8,000 slides relating to the cultural heritage of Trentino, with special reference to the castles hosting the Museum and the collections. The Museum's educational services are committed to disseminating education about the cultural heritage through the planning of educational projects aimed to promote use, knowledge and comprehension of the museum's venues as well as their historical, architectural and decorative aspects, and of course the collections showcased. The Museum boasts other venues throughout the province: Castello di Stenico in the Giudicarie valleys, Castel Beseno near Rovereto and Castel Thun in Val di Non.
