We visited this lovely little museum near Siracusa when we found it by pure chance. It is called the Museo Cavallo d’Ispica.
It is in an old water mill, which the same family has converted into a museum, after several generations of their family used it to mill flour.
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 an enchanting way to spend a couple of hours and the setting was delightful too.
