Map for 44.14255,11.24278
This noteworthy museum is located in an ex-elementary school in Bruscoli, a district in Firenzuola. Its mission is to enhance and uphold local traditions and to make them known to young people and other visitors. It is divided into three sections. The first two spotlight Geo-archeological remains and Paleontology, while the third showcases traditional materials linked to agriculture and craftsmanship, left over from World War II. These remains are connected to the so-called ‘Gothic line’ that ran throughout these mountains and deeply influenced the territory’s history. These geo-archeological remains come from digs that were carried out along an ancient road which was probably of Roman origins and among the ruins of a medieval castle which once belonged to the Alberti counts. Other materials were donated by private sources.
