La materia di cui è fatta l’arte

This is an opportunity to know the real essence of this land. This is the objective of this proposal, which provides as first step a visit to The Museum "Carlo Etenli".
Prepared after years of passionate research determined by the desire to recover and preserve the testimonies and the values of civilization, the Museum collects thousands of farm machinery and tools used as everyday objects, ranked according to functional criteria in seven sections.
It continues with a guided visit to another important example of the economy and local crafts: the Cava Scioso, locality "Casette", from which the yellow stone is extracted. It is the only quarry that has a system of excavation in the open air, for the exploitation of the stone bench surface.
The next morning you'll continue to immerse yourself in a climate of the past, on the trail of local traditions lost, to discover the old fountains and washhouses in the municipal area: Fountain Casalin, the Corrubio, the Crearo, Spiazzo, de Caregheta, de Scaranton, Canton de Naples, Del Buso, the Spidui, the Pescatore (Fisherman).
The itinerary continues with a "deviation" in the nearby town of Zovencedo for a visit to the famous "House on the Rock". The territory of Zovencedo presents karst phenomena and has many caves, some of which showed evidence of ancient occupation by humans. At first they were used as shrines or religious sites, then they became homes, used until a few years ago.
One of the most important examples of cave house is found in the so-called "Sengia of Meoni", built in an old stone quarry and inhabited until the 60's from a very large family.
