The farm “Cambonino vecchio” hosts the Folk Culture Museum.
When you enter the main door, you immediately jump back into the past discovering a world which is not too far and which safeguards our origins.
You will walk in the courtyard, enter the farmer’s house which contains the daily tools, household items and toys for the children; you will walk in the ancient stable where are displayed some working tools for the breeding activities or imagine to do the laundry in the “bügadéera”.
In the cellar you will see how the farmers prepared and stored the wine while under the barchessali you will see the agricultural wagons and machines; before you live the museum, do not forget to visit the little oratorio (little chapel), a special element of this little farm.
The role of this Museum must be enhanced in order to safeguard our origins, our history and traditions. Here you can still breath the signs of the life in the countryside. Every single space tells you a story.
