The Museum of farmers' culture

The Museum occupies overall 9 different rooms in the ancient tower and on the ground floor, each of which is dedicated to a different aspect of farm life: farmers’  cooking; the gentry’s chambers; the “Cartografia” (map room); the “Etnografia” (tool room); ancient rural technology; ancient agricultural machines; the “Frantoio” (where olives are processed into olive oil) and the kitchen; first mechanical agricultural machinery; the library.

The purposes of most items in exhibition are described and explained by short texts indicating the name of the item in Italian and in the dialect on the region it originates from.

The museum maintains also an archive. The documentation contained therein allows reconstructing the history of Lupoli Manor from the 15th century, through the unification wars, until our days. Many of the documents are original some of them are copies.

The buildings of Lupoli Manor reflect the different époques it has witnessed: the ancient medieval tower, the 16th century Chapel, the stable and the peasants’ dorm built during the 17th century and, finally, the gentry’s chambers, finished towards the end of WW I.
