Castle Bruneck, which has been reorganised and extended for several times, has been redeveloped and adapted during the years 2008 – 2011 by EM2 Architects from Bruneck. The architect`s (Gerhard Mahlknecht, Heinrich Mutschlechner, Kurt Egger) aim consists on one hand in the cultural inheritance saving and restoring and on the other hand in accommodating the exhibition of “mountain people in the world”. Telling his own and the history of mountain people at the same time, was the order and cultural responsibility towards the history, the present and the future of the castle. The difficulty lay in integrating an museum concept for the exhibition “mountain people” in already built historical structures. The needed extending buildings should be clearly readable, reserved and are established in a contemporary architectural language. The extending buildings in the access area are consciously made of wood. Wood is a material with a restricted life span, it`s aging and will once be gone like the MMM on castle Bruneck. The extension of the subterranean part “Zwinger” is hardly discernible and covered with a passable greenery free surface between castle and castle wall. About the subterranean extension, cellar rooms are opened in which, darkness and medieval walls are very perceptible. A modern, his technology showing elevator integrated in an late-Gothical part of the building, is part of the museum`s concept and opens the building for handicapped people. A massive wooden stair has been integrated to the round about the year 1282 built Bergfried. While going up to the roof top of the tower, the museums visitor is able to watch the exhibition about “tourism in mountain regions.” The top of the tower offers a beautiful view over Bruneck up to the snowy summits of the Zillertaler Alpen in the Ahrntal. [IT] Il castello di Brunico, sottomesso a tantissimi cambiamenti edili nei secoli passati, è stato risanato, ristrutturato e adatto al futuro uso museale nel periodo 2009-2011. Il compito dello studio di architettura EM2 di Gerhard Mahlknecht, Heinrich Mutschlechner e Kurt Egger era di risanare le vecchie mura, di togliere le parti non storiche, aggiunte negli ultimi anni di utilizzo culturale e scolastico, rifare visibile e leggibile il passato e le epoche originali. Il compito era di impostare la possibilità di raccontare la lunga interessante storia del castello di Brunico e di permettere ai diversi popoli di montagna di raccontare la loro storia in un ambiente adatto. La difficoltà era l’integrazione di spazi d’esposizione senza disturbare il valore dell’esistente. La leggibilità delle nuove strutture contegnose è importante per distinguere il nuovo dal vecchio. Gli edifici d’ampliamento nella zona d’ingresso del castello sono consapevolmente costruiti in legno per facilitare la diversificazione tra nuovo e vecchio, tra caducità e continuità. L’ampliamento seminterrato nelle mura massicce e fredde di cinta del medioevo ospita esposizioni riguardanti nomadi del mondo. L’ascensore, utile per garantire l’accessibilità di tutta l’esposizione, è stato inserito in una parte annessa al castello nell’epoca del tardo gotico. Una massiccia scala di legno porta gli ospiti sul tetto della torre del castello. Una vista incantevole compensa la fatica della salita. Il castello di Brunico, costruito nel 1250 del principe-vescovo Bruno von Kirchberg e residenza estiva dei vescovi di Bressanone per tanti anni, ospita dal 2011 il quinto e ultimo Messner Mountain Museum RIPA– tibetano: RI = montagna, PA = uomo – con il tema principale popoli di montagna.
