Palazzo Geremia

Il Palazzo, una delle più suggestive residenze rinascimentali trentine, è affacciato su quella che un tempo veniva chiamata Contrada Larga, la via principale che conduce alla splendida Piazza Duomo. Gli affreschi della facciata presentano scene alle quali si assisteva frequentemente, nella "via triumphalis" quando imperatori e principi passavano per la città scendendo dalla Germania o facendovi ritorno. Attualmente, il Palazzo ospita gli uffici di rappresentanza del Comune di Trento. Le sale e gli spazi interni sono adibiti ad incontri pubblici, convegni, dibattiti e attività espositive. Il giardino si colloca sul retro del Palazzo e l'Assessorato alla Cultura del Comune di Trento vi si affaccia.
