Casa Grazioli or "Dela Bèga"
Years of history – stretching to the time of the last owner – have been preserved intact in this fascinating house.
It feels as if time has come to a halt in this house, where visitors can see what life was once like in the villages of the Val di Peio. The furniture, clothes, objects and family photographs offer a glimpse of a world that no longer exists.
Take a step back in time on an ethnographic journey through the everyday life of the past at Casa Grazioli. The building has three floors and an attic and it is also known as “Casa de la Béga” (“Béga’s House”) after the nickname of its long-standing inhabitant Domenica Grazioli, who lived here until 1991.
There are two old kitchens with open fireplaces and stone ovens, where bread is still cooked today. A fornèl a óle (ceramic stove) heats the bedroom, where visitors can see family photos, holy water fonts hanging above the bed, clothes in the wardrobe and a school report from 1922 in a chest of drawers. A large room plays host to linen processing tools and agricultural implements that were used in fruit and vegetable gardens and the fields.
