The power and beauty of our land

The jobs and lifestyles of the men and women who made Tuscany great

The museum of Montecastelli Pisanogathers everyday working objects used by the farmer families between the 19th and 20th century. It’s an important tribute to the generations of men and women who preserved and looked after the Tuscan landscape, which is famous everywhere in the world.

The town of Montecastelli recently opened a Rural Life Museum to gather and conserve the tools used in agricultural work at the end of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s.
The Museum was set up thanks to the cooperation of the people living in Montecastelli, who believed in this project and donated all the objects that are on display. The tools and objects displayed are a testimony to the town’s life, which has sometimes been hard due to financial or environmental issues.
The Museum also explores older artisanal activities, in order for the visitor to better understand techniques and crafts of the past and relive a time that would otherwise get lost.
