The Museum of Farming Culture in Colico is an ethnographic museum aiming to preserve and offer to the public a witness of the country life in the late XIX and early XX century documented by founds and material objects.
It dates back to 2007 thanks to an the initiative of the association CIF (Italian Women Centre) and in 2010 it joined the Provincial Museum System.
The museum is organized on two floors: on the first is set up a domestic environment and in the basement are collected objects witnessing various activities on the territory: agricultural, farming and woodland activities (dairy processing, haying, farming, viticulture, cereal), crafts (leather, iron, wool work), women’s activities (spinning and sewing), commercial and public services (school, office, shop).
On the website is also available a section of curious research of intangible assets belonging to the local rural tradition (dialect, sayings, proverbs, nursery rhymes, lullabies and prayers).
The opening is free but upon appointment.
