Museum of the Peasant Culture in Matera

The museum is essentially a faithful rendering of a peasant dwelling in the Sassi before the inhabitants were forced to move out in the 1950's. Visitors to Matera can get an idea of how family life and work was organized in the overcrowded Sassi. You can see not only how the peasants lived but also the furnishings and tools typical of peasant culture.
