Palazzon Museum

Lusiana

Ethnographic Museum of Canal di Brenta

Vicenza

Can a museum attract the visitor, strike his imagination, and give deep emotions? When it manages to immerse children and adults in the adventures of tobacco contraband, or in the history of the river, with the journeys of rafts and timber from the forests to the plains, the museum becomes a living, unforgettable experience.

Val Leogra Rural Civilisation Museum

Malo

"A farmer: thick shoes, thin brain", says the proverb. But who was the farmer? What was his way of living? A past not so distant in time, but radically different in the way of living, reveals its secrets in a 1200-piece collection of objects, which depict a now disappeared human landscape.
