Magnifica Comunità di Cadore

In INFO by admin / 12 maggio 2013 / 0 Comments

The Magnifica Comunità di Cadore is based in the palace on Piazza Tiziano in Pieve di Cadore, alongside the archdeaconal church which symbolises the region’s faith. This ancient institution, founded in the fourteenth century, has for centuries represented Cadore’s autonomy of government thanks to a system of self-governance. From 1338 Cadore’s citizens had a statute, a set of rules which regulated civil, political and administrative affairs and which was updated continually in the centuries that followed. It fell to Napoleon, in 1806, to suppress the Magnificent Community which would later see its rebirth, as a moral entity, in 1875. Today the palace is home to the MARC, Cadore Archaeological Museum, which showcases the pre-Roman and Roman archaeological treasures from the sanctuary of Lagole and the central part of Cadore. The museum houses numerous exhibits: vases, handles of simpulum, ornate bronze sheets and figures, weapons, knives and day-to-day tools, and ceramic and glass receptacles. In addition, the palace is home to a precious archive comprising a historic collection of documents (decrees and scripts from the 13th to  the19th century) and a modern library bringing together studies and research articles on the Cadore, as well as a specialist library dedicated to Titian. Not far from the palace is the childhood home of Titian, first built in the 15th century and subsequently altered several times. Only the radical restorative intervention completed in 1932, organised by the Magnificent Community which owns the building, restored the artist’s home to its original state. Today the building is made up of two storeys in masonry with wooden external staircase and balconies and a two-layered roof covered in traditional wooden shingles. On December 17th 1922, Royal Decree no. 1725 declared the house a national monument.
