Museo della Transumanza (ph. sito Parco nazionale d'Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise)

Transhumance Museum - Villetta Barrea (AQ)

The Museum is a place of study and documentation on the phenomenon of transhumant sheep-farming, a key sector of the local economy and of the whole of Abruzzo until the recent past. Interesting explanatory panels illustrate synthetically, but with great didactic effectiveness, the various historical, social and cultural aspects and the systems of life and work.
The exhibits bear witness to the main productive activities (production of wool and cheese), the forms of equipment of men and animals, the organization of temporary shelters.
Finally, the evocative images of an audiovisual exhibition contribute to recreating the atmosphere of the mountain crossed by the flocks and marked by the millenary efforts of the shepherds.
