Casa Museo del Contadino


in Piazza Armerina

A labour of love for its founder, Mario Albanese, this small but meticulously detailed ethnographic museum recreates a typical Sicilian peasant house of the 19th century. Mario's knowledge of the museum's artefacts and subject matter is impressive, and he happily offers visitors engrossing, oft-moving insight into the living conditions and sheer ingenuity of the region's rural workers (in Italian and French).
