Many internationally famous artists have lived in Malcesine in more recent periods, gaining inspiration for their paintings.
In particular, we recall Baroni, Belluzzi della Mainolda, the Belgian artist Minders da Genk and the unforgettable Ottavio Giacomazzi of Malcesine, who is widely known and highly appraised in many countries, especially in Germany. His works, exhibited in the most important cultural centres of Europe, are the fruit of an intense artistic evolution, tied to his solid roots in the area of Lake Garda.
The spacious and carefully managed library situated in the restored halls on the first floor of the Palace of Captains gives students, citizens and tourists the possibility of perusing through a noteworthy repertory of volumes and magazines, of consulting its multi-media sites for purposes of teaching and research and, for a moment of relaxation, it is always possible to listen to some good music at special listening points. A small section of the library is reserved for books in English and German.
Besides offering a relaxing cultural parentheses, visiting the Castle permits observation from the artillery platform, known as the 'revelino' and especially from the top of the tower, where there is a complete and fascinating panoramic view of the entire territory, a grandiose spectacle that will definitely be impressed upon your memory.
