It is the museum of rural culture which holds the historical patrimony of tools and objects, essential to the reconstruction of the identity of the town. It shows the techniques and the procedures of the activities that took place in the fields, in the craft workshops or in family households.
There are recreated scenes about the work of the farmer with the plough and the various phases of the harvest (the grapes in the vats and the vinification into typical barrels).
The anthropological museum of rural culture
There are also a kitchen with all the utensils and a bedroom with clothes from the end of XVII century. It is the historical memory of culture, tradition, art and crafts of Petrosino.
The museum is based at the local middle school “G. Nosengo” and it is dedicated to the Professor Martino Zichittella, founder and director of the museum from 1987 to 2009.
