Water Light Festival Brixen

Water Light Festival Brixen

May 03 to May 21, 2023

Novixfera (Daniela Cagol), Mario Branca and Federico Romero Bayter will present new works on the subject of water and light.

Water, symbol of life, purification, rebirth and fertility, is considered sacred in many religions, cultures and traditions. Daniela Cagol, in Arte Novixfera presents an undine, (from the Latin unda, wave) elemental spirit of water, often associated with the springs near the forest. These can take the form of foam or ripples of the waves, appearing like graceful water dancers.

The sculptural environment conceived and created  by Mario Branca (Milan 1977) appears like a real underwater forest, Submarine, which over the centuries has undergone a kind of petrification process that has led to the mineralisation of the flora and underwater fauna. Protagonists of the artistic installation are also the paintings of the painter Federico Romero Bayter (Bogotà 1982), who will exhibit large-format paintings with a strong gestural character for the project.


The works can be seen every day, but they are particularly spectacular in the evening from 9 p.m. to midnight, when other light installations can be enjoyed throughout Brixen.

We are looking forward to your visit.

Elisabeth Frei reframed

Elisabeth Frei reframed

Elisabeth Frei is an artist who fully lives up to her name. She gives her viewers roses and bread for the hearts and starving art souls; moreover, she constantly liberates herself and the viewer from the usual opinions nurtured by the mass media.

The newly framed works can be seen in the gallery and in our art shop close to the Seminarplatz.

"Violina" Exhibition - Nerone

Violina – Nerone


01.08. – 30.10.2021

opening hours:

Mo – Fr: 10:00 – 13:00 / 15:00 – 18:00

Sa: 10:00 – 13:00


The art Gallery Hofburg is showing the famous Italian artist Nerone (1939-2021) for the first time.

In the gallery you can admire a wide range of unpublished works, which are shown for the first time in this variety. Let yourself be inspired by the pictures, immerse yourself in the strong colors that Nerone skillfully puts on the canvas.

Born on August 1, 1939 as Sergio Terzi in Villarotta (Emilia-Romagna) in poor circumstances. His father is an alcoholic and pays more attention to his dogs than to his children. As the eldest son, Nerone soon takes on responsibility for his younger siblings. He worked in various professions and, inspired by the painter Antonio Ligabue, decided to pick up a brush one morning.

At the beginning he paints figurines and is ridiculed by his comrades, but soon arouses the attention of art critics. As time went by, his painting evolved, the beasts left place to man. His poetry was finally released. At the centre of every canvas, life came back with less envy, less rancour. The enchantment of the colours started dominating. He still painted his wrath, but he knew how to be a ruthless critic of himself: when a piece didn’t convince him he erased or destroyed it.

Numerous international exhibitions and awards testify to the talent of the artist, who is still very well received today.


Marvel at over 80 works by the artist by the end of October 2021.

You can view other works in the art store Kompatscher at the seminar square.

Gabriele Middelmann - The magic of surface

You can find also new works from Gabriele Middelmann in our art gallery. The german artist creates profundity and space with different layer and overlapping of various materials. That is why she is able to create a tension with simple motifs. Her art lives from the match of colour and surface and is therefore able to join the spirit of time. Don't hesitate to come in our Galerie Hofburg to see the paintings on yourself.
