The museum, founded in 1985 by the “Giustiniani Bandini” Foundation and located in the former guesthouse of the Monastery of Santa Maria di Chiaravalle, covers an area of three hundred square meters. It features objects and instruments used for domestic and rural purposes. The collection comprises various kinds of materials. These include looms, spinning machines, wine-presses, wine-making objects, wooden ploughs (“perticari”), a seeder, a mower, painted carts, yokes, sieves, carpenter’s planes and axes, and games.
