Museo della Civiltà Contadina

Where Località Pian di Porto - Bodoglie Alte, 172, Todi (Perugia)

The Museum is located in Bodoglie Alte, a few kilometers from the center of Todi. Visited since 1987, the Museum has arisen thanks to the initiative of Tersilio Foglietti, former sharecropper, then entrepreneur, who has poured his experience in a passionate search for tools, equipment and machinery capable of representing the most typical rural civilization. The Museum occupies the space of a building once used as a barn, according to a distribution issue that reflects the typical distribution of the rooms of a farmhouse. The path starts from the kitchen (which houses the stuffing for meats, the kneading trough for bread and "battilarda", a cutting board that was used to chop the bacon), continues with the room (bed with a mattress of corn leaves and "prete", warmer-bed), a room devoted to the activities of weaving and spinning with a wooden frame, and the largest room which contains tools to work in the fields and to craft activities. They fit a number of agricultural units and, in farmyard in front of the structure, various models of tractors, including a 1917 Ford, and one brand Fiat 1918.
