Daily life in the 19th century

In mountain villages such as Esino, people have to be as self-sufficient as possible. From food to clothing, everything is produced locally in a demanding cycle of work that adapts and exploits each season. The Museum recalls daily life in Esino through numerous objects that document food production and preparation, farming and herding and those linked to dairy products.

In the former site of the Museum, located in the Council square close by, visitors can also see the reconstruction of a casel, the typical huts dotted around the hayfields that surround the village where milk was turned into butter and cheese.
