Via Andreas-Hofer

General description

Via Andreas Hofer owes its name to the South Tyrolean patriot who led the 1809 uprising against Napoleon; when arrested in 1810, Andreas Hofer was imprisoned in the Egna prison on the night of January 30th before being transferred to Mantua to be executed. The old court prisons are found at house number 28; originally property of the lords of Enn and Caldiff, they remained in use until 1830. Today, the building is in private hands, but on the ground floor, two cells with cross vaults remain, and plaque commemorating the illustrious guest marks the façade.
