MAV opened on January 24, 2009. It houses in Villa Montana near the famous medieval castle of Fenis. MAV is not a nostalgic museum: the promotion of the works of its collection proves a dynamic project of cultural production in which the dialogue with the territory prevails and where community can identify the distinctive and evolutionary lines of a shared handicraft patrimony.

Place for meeting and discussion as well as dynamical and inventive workshop, MAV connects the role of guardian of memory to cultural promotion, educational impulse and research activities aimed to create some opportunities for participation and exchange with the community and craftsmen. In the same spirit, the training vocation expresses in experiential learning activities focused on gestures and contact with the raw material devoted to a wide audience of youths and adults.

This is a real gem of a museum. The collection of rural craftwork is second to none and the more you get to know the area the more you understand that much of it is still in use and being produced. Brilliantly curated and displayed with good translations available.

Visiting the L Artisana boutique close to che Courmayeur church you will find original Artisanal pieces at reasonable price. The staff was extremely kind and we learn a lot about the local wooden and metal artisans. Enjoy!

In the first section of the museum you can even touch the objects and their raw material: stone, iron, wool and wood. A very tactile experience. Each... More
