Via Grande, 23 - Monticello Amiata
The “Casa Museo di Monticello Amiata”, or “House Museum of Monticello Amiata”, is in a historic building of the old town centre and faithfully recreates a typical nineteenth-century mountain home of the Mount Amiata region. On the entrance floor is the heart of the house, consisting of the kitchen and bedroom with authentic decor and furnishings. Downstairs you can visit the barn, the storehouse and an old animal-powered mill, with a collection of work and agricultural tools that testify to labour in the fields and woods of the area. Adjacent to the House Museum is a cultural centre that runs educational workshops aimed at exploring themes related to the chestnut cycle and production culture, locally and in general. To enrich the visit, you can go follow two nature trails entitled the “Via della Castagna”, or “Chestnut Trail”, and “Via delle Fonti”, or “Trail of the Springs”. In addition, the library and documentary and photographic archives are available to consult at the educational laboratory of the House Museum. Available, finally, are educational workshops and guided tours of the museum and, on request, organized trails of the “Via della Castagna” and “Via delle Fonti”.
