Museum of Ancient Crafts

Valli del Pasubio

The everlasting charm of working tools used in trades, which nowadays have disappeared. A tangible evidence of everyday history, even if not very remote, and of local culture and lifestyles, which today have changed a lot in the borderland area. Various objects and explanations of their use illustrate the history of the mountain people of the Upper Leogra Valley.

Venetian Sawmill

Valli del Pasubio

The project of a water sawmill was created by Leonardo, but the machine was soon renamed "Venetian", because it was introduced during the time of the Serenissima Republic. In the village of Segetta, in Val Leogra, remains the only still operational Venetian sawmill, the sawmill of Miola, dated in 1700s.
