As a former location of princely representation the province gallery, founded with the collections Czernin and Schönborn-Buchheim, illustrates an essential part of Salzburg’s history. CastYourArt talked to Dr. Roswitha Juffinger who has been head of the Residenzgalerie Salzburg for 25 years, about her ambitious plans.

The reopening of the Lange Galerie in September 2009 marked the beginning of the implementation of an ambitious museum concept, planned to be finished by 2013: To reconstitute a connection of the premises of the dome square within the interior of the adjacent buildings as well, and to create accessibility between the residence, the dome, the Lange Galerie, the Wallistrakt until the Franziskanerkirche – all with the purpose to reconstruct the unity of secular and ecclesiastic building, interiors and collections dissolved after the first world war, and to reconstitute the connection between the histories of building and of political domination.
