Collections

Gli strumenti del falegname

The Giara Horse Museum's ethnographic section counts approximately 400 items, all restored, catalogued and labelled according to ICCD (Italian Central Institute for Cataloguing and Documentation) cataloguing standards. The ethnographic collection has been entirely donated by the local population and is exhibited throughout the Museum's various rooms.

Around 300 video clips featuring interviews of the local population form part of the exhibition, with descriptions of the items on display, and accounts of traditional work and the town’s history.

The Museum's exhibition is also enhanced with over 40 illustrations by the artist, Pia Valentinis, whose pictures portray interview contents and other occurrences in the town's past.
