The Museum

A museum that evokes the life and activities of the Vigezzo of yesteryear. The small ethnographic museum is housed in a splendid seventeenth-century building completely made of stone, overlooking a small square. It takes its name from its latest owners, the sisters Rosa and Giovanna Adorna. The exhibition presents objects and tools of peasant culture. On the ground floor the tools used in agricultural and dairy activities are distributed in a room dominated by a large Vigezzo fireplace, while on the side there is the reconstruction of a nineteenth-century room with linen in "tela da cà", the "bisaca" and others objects. On the first floor, in the first room, the tools used in the processing of textile fibers (dominates over the whole large seventeenth-century loom) and in the manufacture of footwear, together with a splendid reconstruction of a mill, are exhibited, while, in the second room it is possible to observe the small wooden banquets of the old school.
