Chiesa e Convento dei Domenicani

— Kirche und Kloster der Dominikaner —

The text of this marker is in three languages; Italian (top), German (middle) and English (bottom).

Complesso conventuale de Domenicani, documentati a Bolzano dal 1272, profondamente modificato dopo la secolarizzazione nel 1785. La chiesa di impianto gotico conserva affreschi trecenteschi, cora con stucchi rococ? e pala del Guercino (1655). La cappella S. Giovanni ? interamente affrescata da pittori giotteschi (1330). Nel chiostro dipinti trecenteschi e affreschi di F. Pacher e di S. M?ller (XV-XVI sec.). Nell'ala dell'ex-convento ricostruita dopo i bombardamenti dell'ultima guerra hanno sede il Conservatorio Musicale e la Galleria Civica.

Die Kirche und die daran angrenzenden Geb?ude stellen die Reste des seit 1272 urkundlich belegten urspr?nglichen Dominikanerklosters dar.
Nach der S?kularisierung von 1785 wurde das gesamte Ensemble mehrfach umgebaut. Im gotischen Kirchenraum sind Fresken aus dem 14. Jh. erhalten.
Der Chor ist mit Rokoko-Stukkaturen verziert, das Altarbid stammt von Guercino (1655). Die W?nde der Johannes-Kapelle schm?cken Fresken aus der Giotto-Schule (1330). Im Kreuzgang haben sich Malereien des 14 Jh. sowie Fresken von F. Pacher und S. M?ller (15./16. Jh.) erhalten.
Durch die Bombardierungen des Zweiten Weltkrieges wurden Kloster und Kirche schwer besch?digt. Der wieder aufgebaute Fl?gel des ehemaligen Klosters beherbergt heute das Konservatorium und die Stadtgalerie.

The church dedicated to St. Dominic and the annexed buildings are what remains of the original Dominican monastery, documented since 1272. After its secularisation in 1785, the complex was deeply altered.
The Gothic structure of the church preserves 14th century frescoes, a choir with rococo stuccoes and the alter piece by Guercino (1655). The St. John Chapel is entirely frescoed by the school of Giotto (1330). In the cloister, 14th century paintings and frescoes by F. Pacher and S. M?ller (15th-16th century).
The rebuilt wing of the former convent hosts the seat of the State Conservatory of Music and the City Gallery (Galleria civica/Stadtgalerie).
