Figline Valdarno
The Museum of Farming Life is housed in what were the stables and oil press of an old farmhouse attached to the eleventh century Romanesque church of Gaville.The items on display illustrate the work and traditions of farming life from the eighteenth century to the end of the 1960s. Most of the museum’s collections come from the Valdarno region, although there are some items from other areas on display for comparative purposes. Each room in the museum is dedicated to a particular job and documents the most important aspects of rural life in the Valdarno region, especially relating to the production of olive oil. The eighteenth century oil press is of particular interest as it is in perfect condition. Visitors should also note the ancient wine cellars and a herb garden with locally grown medicinal herbs.
