We visited this lovely little museum near Siracusa a couple of years ago. It is in an old water mill, which the same family has conveted into a museum, after several generations of their family used it to mill flour. It is called the Museo Cavallo d’Ispica.
They were clearly the kind of hoarders who never threw anything away!!! It has originals of everything relating to 18th century rustic life, including the Arabic style laundry where they used the running water to wash clothes, the bathroom with bath tub, the kitchen, the bakery, the bedrooms and all the lacy linen, and the kitchen with a collection of vast wooden spoons used to stir the pasta and wack naughty children, in the Sicilian tradition….
It was enchanting and the setting was delightful too.
