Valli del Pasubio
Museum of Ancient Crafts
the permanent exhibition
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. In the museum reconstructed around the fireplace, there is a kitchen with a range of nowadays obsolete furnishings. Other tools are grouped by profession, to represent those most common in the valley: farmer, forester, winemaker, blacksmith, carpenter, shoemaker, butcher and dairyman.
