Municipality: Tolentino Region: Marche

The Museum is situated in the building housing in the past the monastery guest house. It consists of a collection of agricultural tools, kitchen tools, and carpentry objects coming from the country houses of the surroundings, whose main activity is still today agriculture.
Among the most interesting objects there are ancient looms, wine vats, a wooden plough, a characteristic cart of the Marches, and several tools to make ropes, press grapes, and so on.
The collection is completed by many photos illustrating the most important moments of rural life, like the threshing time, the straw stack, the cattle fairs, and the sowing time.
There are also two interesting documents dating back to 1908 and 1932: they are the so-called "atti della stima", and they are an analytic evaluation of each element forming the bride trousseau.
