Museo Laboratorio della Civiltà Contadina
The Museo Laboratorio della Civiltà Contadina was built by Donato Cascione which is still managed by the NGO that bears the name. It extends for about 500 square meters in its final composition, the museum consists of a series of houses connected for exhibition needs. The first room reproduces a mezzanine “lamione” which is the only compartment built that connects to a pre-existing cave. This allowed the family unit to separate from the beasts during the night. The setting up was preceded by the collection over the years of tools and instruments of the time that were the basis of the economic and social life of the Città dei Sassi.
In the Museum it is possible to buy guide books and souvenirs. Come and visit us, and we will tell you our story and that of thousands of families who lived and worked in the ancient houses.
