Gefängnis Le Carceri Gallery

Just as interesting as its exhibitions is the history of the Gefängnis Le Carceri Gallery in Caldaro

Few people know today that Caldaro was once home to the prison of the District Court, built in the 17th century during the reign of Claudia de Medici. It remained in function until the 1970s, then the "old prison" was abandoned. It passed from the state first to the region and finally to the municipality of Caldaro, which renovated it and established the base of the Health and Social Centre here. Particular importance was attached to the renovation of the cell wing:

The small rooms with the barred windows were preserved, fitted with new wooden floors and a new staircase and made accessible as a cultural meeting place. Since 2005, the gallery, appropriately named "Gefängnis Le Carceri" (literally: Prison), has been located here. With its historical furnishings and objects such as the tiled stoves and wooden doors of the low cells, it offers a very special ambience for exhibitions of various kinds.

Every year, four exhibitions of modern artists are organised according to the concept 1+1=1: One artist comes from South Tyrol, the other from abroad - the two enter into dialogue with each other and organise an exhibition together. And how to reach the Gefängnis Le Carceri Gallery? It is located at the Colle dei Frati hill ("Pater Bichl" in local dialect) in Caldaro, a bus stop is located at the central Market Square, which is only a few steps away.
