Monday 25th the Passeggiata Resistente (Resistant Walk) in the places of memory, immersed in the Tuscan countryside around the village, you will walk along the paths of the partisans and admire the extraordinary landscapes that the hill offers.

 

The Museum of Rural Life, housed in the farm premises of the Vaccà-Berlinghieri palace, recalls and promotes the traditions and life of past generations. The Museum allows visitors to take a journey through rural civilisation from the end of the 18th century to just a few decades ago, retracing the simplicity of agricultural manners, customs and traditions that preserve the charm of the relationship between man, work and nature. Sixteen rooms have been reconstructed in the basement, including an oil mill, a cellar, a grain store, a laundry, a forge for working metals, a carpenter’s workshop and a cupboard. More than 1,500 tools of various sizes are preserved, including ancient ploughs. It is interesting to visit the escape tunnel that served as an underground connection to the Castle, in the highest part of the village
