Wood-Turning Art Museum

The museum holds a collection of work tools, manufactured products, videos, interviews and photographs. It recounts the work of the Cusio stone-cutters, who were masters in this field. In the nearby locality of Centonara, a mill for grinding the hemp is open to the public. It contains a splendid granite millstone, testimony of the rural life and the skill of te stone-cutters.
The stone-cutter was really a hard and dangerous job, but many inhabitants of these countries used to carry it out since the first decades of the 19th century and until the second half of the following century. A special railway connected the extractive area with the industries: marble, granite and serpentine are the jewels of this area, and contributed to celebrate the whole area all over the world.
