This not only had a good range of clothing from every day Italian people but a great recreation of a kitchen in a home. Well worth calling in. The woman on the desk helped explain a number of the items on the display.

Lovely guide. It doesn't take very long to get round (6 small rooms in total) but it is interesting and good value.

Pretty small collection but very distinctive. Mostly 19th and 20th century clothing with a nice collection of kitchen utensils tucked in the back. The photos--especially the wedding photos--were very interesting to see. Easily worth the 2 euro price of admission, though not much more.
