On the second floor there two rooms, the first room has a big wooden loom, an old cradle and many different hoes, the second room is currently used as a conference room.

From the first room is possible to access the large private garden in the back of the museum. It’s 300 sqm and has a small stage used during summertime for live shows.

Unfortunately the museum is not accessible by disabled people because of the many steps to access the different rooms.

The goal of our museum is to keep and preserve the history of our ancestors. It’s important not only for us but for the next generations who will have the possibility to learn more about the life of the past centuries.

All the tools and utensils will become in the next 15-20 years rare and a museum is the best way to keep them alive and at the disposal of all the community who like the history of its roots.

Lucito has other museums and it would be a nice and pleasant stopover in your next journey in Molise!

We look forward to meet you in our museum!
