The building, significant for art and history, is the residence of Lodron since 1456. In the second half of the sixteenth century, work began on the building incorporating the existing buildings.
A writing above the entrance portal indicates that it was built on pre-existing premises at the behest of Count Nicoló Lodron in the 1593. Subsequently, some external works were no longer carried out.
The building is on three sides: a long central body and two wings. The central body is defended towards the valley by a wall with towers at the corners. The south wing houses the "Relais Palazzo Lodron" from the 2010. while the north wing is home to the winery.
Access is between two towers with hake and loopholes. Beyond the south door that leads into the courtyard of the palace, you plunge into the green with its cherry trees. To the mountain, a wall with a beautiful fountain with a lion that holds the motto "Fortitudo", emblem of the Lodron. Opposite is the main entrance of the palace surmounted by a limestone statue representing the same Nicolò. The door of the north wing leads into a beautiful tree-lined avenue with horse chestnuts, between two walls, which leads to the locality of S. Lucia.
The Renaissance palace is especially remembered as a court seat in witch trials in the 1647-1717 period.
The Lodron Family
The Lodron, one of the most important families in Trentino, were originally from the area north of the lake of Idro mentioned for the first time in the 900, with possessions in the Giudicarie valleys, Rendena and del Chiese.
Around half of the 1400 arrived in Vallagarina, when they answered the call of the Prince Bishop of Trento, Giorgio Hack, who had problems with some feudal lords. Among them the counts of Castelbarco who in fact refused for some years to ask him the renewal of the fortresses of Castelnuovo, Castellano, Nomi and Castelcorno. The Bishop then commissioned the Lodron to strike the feudal infidels and so Marco di Caderzone, with his father Giorgio and uncle Pietro, occupied Castelnuovo (Castel Noarna) and forced the other three castles to surrender. As a reward, the bishop entrusted the castles of Castelnuovo and Castellano as fiefs to the Lodrons.
Mozart and the Lodron family
Countess Antonia Lodron was a friend of the Mozarts, who lived on the same street. Wolfgang Amadeus and Sister Nannerl gave piano lessons to the daughters of the countess. The concert for three pianos, the K242, was composed by Mozart for the countess Antonia and the daughters Aloisia and Giuseppa Lodron. That concert and two entertainments of the 1776-77, the K247 and the K278, which are known as Lodronsche Nachtmusiken (Serenades lodroniane) are dedicated to the countess herself.
During the trip to Italy in the 1776 Mozart was a guest of the Lodron Counts. That period the composer wanted him to immortalize in his works: Don Giovanni sings on Marzemino, the typical wine of the Vallagarina, in a duet with Leporello: "Pour the wine! Excellent marzimino! ".
