Things to See & Do – Folk Museum

Gurro and Cannobina Valley Folk Museum

Cannobbina Valley – Village of Gurro

The village of Gurro typifies the customs and popular culture of the Cannobina Valley, with its ancient historic centre of narrow streets threading through huddles of stone houses with large wooden loggias.

The Folk Museum at Gurro

The Cannobina Valley Folk Museum is in the centre of the old part of the village, and provides a window onto the life of the past. An essentially rural and agricultural way of life is illustrated in the display of clothes, lace, toys, crockery and a huge range of wooden tools.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A typical kitchen room

Gurro was famous in the area for the production of goods made of hemp and wool, so the museum’s exhibits include traditional spinning wheels, weaving looms and combing implements.
