Craftsmanship and trades
Legnameir, funadri, sciobar, fereir (carpenters, rope makers, shoemakers, blacksmiths) and many other craftsmen and workers skilfully worked materials such as leather, wood, hides and numerous tools required for the manufacture of tools, furniture, homes and all that was needed for work in the fields and daily life.
There are also numerous examples of female craftsmanship at the Museum. A large tapestry, owned by the family of Mario Testorelli (whose surname seems to derive from the dialect word tesctor - weaver) stands in one of its rooms and recalls the complexity of its creation by skilled craftsmen as well as the great skill of the women who, shuttle in hand and pedals underfoot, produced the fabrics necessary for the manufacture of clothing and household linen.
Everything was self-produced in a self-sufficient regime that, out of necessity, scrupulously followed the rhythm marked by the alternation of the seasons of nature and the life of men and women. Time followed a circular pattern in which, thanks to small or large innovations of which the objects present at the Museum bear witnesses, human events took shape, from generation to generation.
