MUSEO BALBIANO

Museum
The Balbiano Museum borns, as often happens, somewhat by chance.

Francesco Balbiano around the late 80’s is pladged in the complex process of transformation of his family’s farm in the new headquarters. In 1986 the store opening, in 1988 the brand new winery is ready. During the restoration of this historic building, there are many countrylife objects were moved to make way for new structures and the needs of a modern winery. The barn, the stable, the carriages’ shelter: a large number of agricultural implements, used until a few years before by the “old” family. Francesco feels very attached to all this and the fear that the physical representation of the history and traditions of his family is dispersed is definitely too much. For this reason, instead of throwing them, the objects are cleaned and restored patiently waiting for a placement.

The idea of ​​a small museum of rural traditions came out during the restoration of the old shelter of the carriages: a large space on the ground floor, perfect for an exhibition.  In 1990, therefore, the Balbiano Museum is inaugurated.
