Piana di Lucca Farmer Museum

Agriculture, artisans and culture

Capannori

The museum is housed in two separate buildings. One section is located in the 17th-century Republic of Lucca commissary; the other section is found in an old farmhouse. The permanent exhibition is an ethnographic collection of testimonials from the local farming and artisan culture. The area’s traditional crops (grain, corn, beans, linen and mulberry) are documented through objects, writings, explicit drawings, photographs and more. Visitors can even browse the library specialized in local customs and history of the farming culture. Inside the library there is a collection of photographs and slides that illustrate the rural traditions. The painting gallery organizes guided visits for schools and groups in the area.
