Museo Bergomi

Bergomi Museum

The Bergomi museum exhibits a selection of ethnographic finds from the Alpine valleys and the Brescia plain, belonging to the collection created by the Brescia painter Giacomo Bergomi (1923-2003), donated in 1999 to the Municipality of Montichiari. The collection includes about six thousand pieces and is the most important nucleus of these museum assets in the province of Brescia, capable of documenting the historical reality of the local agricultural world of the last two centuries. The first section offers visitors an extensive reconstruction of the traditional cycles of the year and of human life, captured in their intertwining and their links with agricultural activities. The second section presents metal and woodworking techniques with a look at the ancient crafts of the carpenter, carver, basket maker, blacksmith, ferrario and rowing. Temporary exhibitions are held periodically in the museum.
