The museum aims to document the popular, rural culture of the area, which has largely disappeared today. It displays reconstructed models of the homes and rooms of the farmhouses of rural workers in the Casentino area. The objects showcased illustrate the atmosphere of rural life, and highlight the economical, social and cultural motivations behind the creation of objects, used both in the home and in agriculture. The museum was first opened in 1996 and called ‘museum of rural civilization’. In 1999, it was renovated and became part of the network of agricultural and ecological museums of the Casentino area. The museum collection was started by Giancarlo Del Pasqua in the 1960s.
Saturday and Sunday, from 3pm to 7pm
