Little trebbia (thresh) for wheat, grown in the sunniest plots more


In the eighties, some enthusiasts from Pro Loco, while touring the districts of Valli del Pasubio, have collected and recovered instruments, machines and tools commonly used until the mid-fifties. This material has been waiting for a suitable place until in 1995, when it was placed in a large room above the Parish Theatre more
