Ethno-Anthropological Museum of Rural Life

The Cultural Anthropology Collection contains folkloric items and those used in daily life before industrial development.
The exhibition in the central halls is divided into several sections: agricultural work, the cultivation of wheat (the most important until the recent past) and other activities typical of that time.
A long narrow room, originally intended for stables, is now home to reconstructions of artisan workshops. The exhibition also contains a section dedicated to the house, a stone oven that served throughout the district during the war and a Sicilian cart. The latter, is richly decorated and one of the most popular representative symbols of Sicily and its traditions. Each piece of the cart, the sides, the wheels, the box, contains colors the Island’s wonderful colors taken from oranges and lemons, the sky and sea, Etna’s lava and even prickly pears
