The Museum of Rural Culture was created in this area with the aim of strengthening a sense of collective identity through the historical and scientific reconstruction of our history; likewise to defend and preserve the memory of our roots from the danger of oblivion or any distortion or misinterpretation of the meaning and age-old significance of customs and traditions.

This house-cum-museum is intended as a place where, through observation and the various educational workshop activities it hosts, the foundations of our culture are preserved and brought back to life; an active presence in the district able to renew encounters for successive generations with the way of life of their ancestors and providing them with the opportunity to make comparisons besides reminding them of their all too frequently forgotten roots.

It is laid out in two sections: the first is dedicated to “How the house was once” and therefore it faithfully reproduces two typical rooms in a farmhouse, the kitchen and the bedroom; while the second section is concerned with re-evoking the seasonal cycles of two of the principle agricultural products, wine and maize. As well as these exhibits, we have dedicated a small area to displays of the principle utensils linked to the work carried out by women such as sewing, weaving and embroidery and also to farm implements connected to the men’s work.
