Guardabosone – House of Ancient Trades

Museums

ZonaMedium and low Valsesia

This museum is housed in a typical building with wooden loggia, and is composed of set rooms furnished with equipment and tools historically used in the daily activities of the local tradesmen, such as the tinsmith, blacksmith, knife sharpener, slipper-maker, cobbler and carpenter: you can take a dip into history and old traditions to relive the atmosphere of those times. On the upper floors there is a vast and interesting entomological collection, judged to be amongst the five largest in the world and the result of personal interest on the part of Cav. Locca.

In addition, for students and lovers of this field, there are many documents which are always kept up to date.
