Museo Ettore Guatelli

A museum out of the ordinary. Outside the box. Out of time. Ancient, archaic, very modern. Of yesterday, of today, of tomorrow. A space of the memory that tells about us, about what we have been, about ours daily life, even the most intimate, but alive and pulsating, capable of offering ideas for what we could be tomorrow. A guardian of civilization
One can only define the extraordinary collection in this way of the Ettore Guatelli Museum: 60,000 objects of daily use that everyone together, in a choral way, cover the walls of the rooms, a time of agricultural use, without interruption. Yes they can admire one by one, understand their use, manufacturing, origin, imagine the stories of women and men who of those objects were used. Or we can choose to leave each other to be moved by the whole, by the "everything": the unique work of a man who, with passion sought them, wanted them, understood them, exposed them artistic way, to show everyone their beauty, listen to the their story. But most of all: to declare their dignity out loud.
