Museo delle Genti d'Abruzzo
Museo delle Genti d'Abruzzo information
Located on a quiet road parallel to the river on the opposite bank from the centre, this wonderful museum illustrates Abruzzo peasant culture. The information is mainly in Italian, but the objects speak eloquently for themselves. There are shepherds' capes, carnival masks, outlandish silver saddle pommels and even a conical stone hut, and the section on Scanno costume and jewellery is outstanding. Altogether this amounts to a moving exploration of a lost way of life. Opening hours are changeable; check the website for the current schedule.
