Filzerhof e mulino De Mil
Discover the daily life of the ancient Mòcheno community in Maso Filerhof farm-house and De Mil mill.
Travel back in time to see how the Mòcheno population lived hundreds of years ago. The Maso Filzerhof farmhouse, purchased by the Mòcheno Cultural Institute and open from May to October, has been refurbished and re-styled with traditional elements. The living quarters are located on the ground floor, while the farm complex with the cellar, the stall and piggery, the courtyard, the barn, the milk-dairy, the hayloft and the manure-pit are hosted on various levels. The roof is made of approximately three thousand handmade larch shingles fastened on horizontal beams, which are held by heavy stones. Equally interesting is the ethno-botanical path through the vegetable garden, which boasts traditional plants and herbs.
Another refurbished venue, the Roveda mill, that was known as De Mil and used to mill rye, wheat, barley and oats, is part of the Open-air museums project that, in addition to the Filzerhof farmhouse and the mill, includes the mine called Grua va Hardömbl. The initiative is promoted by the Mòcheno Cultural Institute with the aim of guarding the cultural and linguistic identity of these two minority groups in the province of Trento.
