Malcesine, (Verona)

Malcesine, located in the high Garda Lake, has several places of interest: Church of St. Stephen (VIII century), Church of S. Maria di Navene (XI century), Church of SS. Benigno and Caro, Oratory of Cassone (XV century), Church of Madonna della Fontana (XVI century); Palazzo dei Capitani and Scaliger Castle, originally built by Longobards and passed to Scala in 1277. On the keep there is civic bell, fused in 1442. Among the illustrious figures linked to Malcesine, Gustav Klimt, who painted in the summer of 1913 here two of his most famous paintings, inspired by the landscape: "Church at Cassone", kept in Rome in National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome, and "Malcesine on Lake Garda", destroyed in the fire of Castle of Immendorf , near Vienna, in 1945. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is also linked to this territory, visited during his trip in Italy. During the summer there is a lively cultural activity with numerous concerts at Lacaor Theater, a striking natural arena at the foot of Scaliger Castle, and exhibitions of painting and sculpture. In February, traditional Triduum is held in parish church: three days of prayer for the souls in purgatory, during which an imposing scene is mounted with hundreds of candles, and is performed by the chorus "Voci di Malcesine" , Miserere mei Deus by Lorenzo Perosi. Since 2011 Malcesine is also home to a stage of Red Bull Cliff Diving, world championship of diving from great heights.
