San Vito di Leguzzano
Ethnographic Wood Work Museum
Opened to the public in 1998, the museum is the result of passionate work dedicated to historical research developed over the years, materialized firstly as themed photographic exhibitions on the history of the place.
This archival research revealed documentary evidence that since 1400s up until after World War II in San Vito there had been a strong presence of workshops dedicated to woodworking and to the manufacture of wagons and barrels.
These findings have led to the founding of the museum and to the subsequent historical research.
The Museum is housed in the old areas of barn, thatch and cellars of the complex of buildings belonging to the fifteenth century villa of the Gandin Priory, which is now gone.
