The Museum of folk crafts artistic productions is in Fontanarosa City, in the province of Avellino. The Museum is located downstream of the country a few meters from the old town of the city. The Museum houses inside a very diverse collection of artifacts to contemporary art. For example, we see in the outer space of the museum a copy of the Nike of Samothrace. Also of great importance are the two majestic mortars, made by stonemasons of Fontanarosa with stone blocks of more than 100 tons. Of great interest is the so-called "tank room" which houses the wooden wagon Fontanarosa. The use of wood is a typical feature of the area Fontanarosa tradition. Other works present are the result of unpaid donations of the artists both Italian and foreign. On the ground floor of the museum is the town library with more than 2000 volumes.
