This not only had a good range of clothing from every day Italian people but a great recreation of a kitchen in a home. Well worth calling in. The woman on the desk helped explain a number of the items on the display.

Pretty small collection but very distinctive. Mostly 19th and 20th century clothing with a nice collection of kitchen utensils tucked in the back. The photos--especially the wedding photos--were very interesting to see. Easily worth the 2 euro price of admission, though not much more.
