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 other venue of MAG is the Galleria Civica G. Segantini in Arco, standing at the foot of the Castle Mount which dominates the entire Sarca valley.
This museum houses the historical and cultural heritage of Riva and the Alto Garda.
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.
Don't miss out:
The archaeological section of the Museum houses one of the most important collections in the province with the most significant finds unearthed in the Alto Garda area which is particularly rich in its archaeological heritage. Highlights include ancient flint artifacts from Monte Baldo which date back to Neanderthal man and the piledwellings of Ledro and Fiavé, not to mention statue-steles from the Copper Age in Arco.
There are also major finds from the Roman period such as the place of worship in Monte San Martino and finds from the historic centre of Riva del Garda and the outstanding thermal baths in via Pilati.
A space dedicated to families; a new section/itinerary which provides children with a new experience of the museum space, one which is both fun and educational.
A must for all visitors to the museum is the climb up to the Mastio, the main tower of the Rocca offering a breathtaking view of the city and the lake.
