The Museum

The agricultural world through culture and memory

The museum is a fascinating space where you can discover and rediscover objects and curiosities from the ancient rural world.

The collection on display in the Museum of Farming Culture was sought, expanded, and carefully preserved by the Palmieri family: a heritage representing the culture, yesterday as today, of the agricultural world that has always been a reference point for the Tenuta Vannulo.

The exhibition space at the Vannulo Estate focuses on farming culture from the 19th century onwards, with about a thousand objects.

The objects presented – mainly tools for work in the fields, carpentry and mechanics tools, kitchen utensils, body care articles – recount the real everyday life of the men and women who wrote the history and handed down the knowledge of an area that is still committed to agriculture. In addition, the exhibits display tools for shoemaking, butchery, saddlery, and tailoring.

Wooden showcases divide the collection’s items by category, reflecting their association with a specific genre of art.

Everyone is welcome to visit the museum at any time during the estate’s opening hours.
