The Chestnut Museum is located in the enchanting historic village of Colognora, in the Municipality of Pescaglia. Originally entirely dedicated to chestnuts, it now also houses a room dedicated to the musician Alfredo Catalani, whose family was from Colognora. In addition to this room, the museum consists of two sections: the first focuses on the use of wood, told through specific workshops, with insights into the various professions, places and working materials. It's possible to admire a pertica (rod) or frusta (strap) used in carpentry that are about 250 years old. The second section concerns the alimentary use of chestnuts and includes a themed collection that is unique in Italy. Here, the various tools related to this food tradition are exhibited, starting from the grafting of the chestnut, pruning, harvesting, drying, "beating", milling and conservation of flour. Walking through the village, it's possible to admire not only the historic drying room called the metato and the charcoal cellar, but also the views that open onto the woods and the Apuan Alps, surrounded by greenery.
