Messner Mountain Museum: Six places, six exhibitions, six experiences
Magdalena Maria Messner
Reinhold Messner, adventurer, originator and outstanding mountaineer, has created a total museum concept: six museums located at prominent positions in South Tyrol and the Belluno Dolomites that tell of the encounter between people and mountains. This book covers each location of the Messner Mountain Museum: Firmian at Sigmundskron Castle in Bozen, Ortles in Sulden, Juval near Naturns, Ripa in Bruneck, Corones on the Kronplatz and Dolomites on Monte Rite. It describes the relevant theme, the exhibition, Messner’s personal highlights, the landscape and the astonishing architecture, ranging from medieval castles and a military fortress to the contemporary architecture of Zaha Hadid.
“The Messner Mountain Museum is a meeting place with the mountain, with mountain and people, and ultimately also with ourselves.“ Reinhold Messner
