Museo Civico di Storia e Cultura Contadina Genovese e Ligure


"Museum of peasant life"

This museum was founded in 1983, and is housed in a late 18th century villa in the quiet countryside near Garbo. It is one of the most recently founded Genoese museums. In the two rooms on the top floor various agricultural implements are on display, as well as captions and photgraphs which illustrate the cultivation cycles of the vines, the olives, the chestnuts, and the traditional occupations of the Ligurian peasantry including aspects of family and religious life. The museum also houses a vast store of documentation on the organisation of rural residences and on regional folklore. It contains a huge tape collection containing spoken or sung recordings of peasant life - the extraordinary vitality of the peasant culture in the past emerges from these. Admission: Free for school children (it is necessary to book), under 18's and over 60's. It is free for everyone on Sunday's.
