Museum of Rural Civilization

The Museum of rural Civilization of Vaglio Basilicata, conceived and realized by the ACLI with the collaboration of the Municipality that has provided the premises, was inaugurated on 6 July 2007. Collects as a whole about 600 items including agricultural work tools and utensils, whose life covers a period of time ranging from about 1850 to the 70s of the twentieth century, all voluntarily donated not only by members of that circle, but also by many local farmers. It is presented according to the trade of agricultural and handicraft activities and offers a broad and organic, also supported by photographs from the era, one that was, until the second half of the last century, the life of a small community, such as the Vaglio Basilicata community, tied to the land and its extensive exploitation by a workforce based on animals and on human arms.
To those who have experienced it firsthand, the museum brings to mind positive and negative experiences, sometimes even painful. To the youngest it offers the opportunity to reflect on how hard and difficult the existence of the peasants entrusted to seasonal trends capricious and unpredictable, the aridity of the soil and the arrogance of the singles. Everything was precarious or imponderable as the clouds flying high in the sky and from which depended the life or death of entire communities. The farmers wise and patient, resigned to that, looked up and said, "God willing." Edited by Prof. Saponara
