Momentarily closed

The Valsesian culture is the central focus of the collection created in 1977 by a group of folklore enthusiasts from Borgosesia. Hard work and passion went into forming a collection which is fundamental to the reconstruction of the Valsesian identity, in all its creative and industrious strength: instruments for local crafts, atmospheric reconstructions of interiors with original furniture, everyday items, a collection of typical musical instruments, scores, parchments and traditional costumes of the valley.

The trims used to decorated dresses made using the "puncetto” technique are of particular interest, along with Valsesian jewellery, richly characterised by garnets and filigree crafting.
