Museo Ettore Guatelli


Museo Guatelli

The museum of rural life and time was born thanks to the passionate collector’s passion of Ettore Guatelli. He has collected all his tools and objects used by the farmers all his life, and then placed them, with the care of an artist, on the walls and shelves of this old country house on the Bella Foglia farm.
The collection Guatelli gathers more than 60.000 artifacts bearing witness to the lives and work of men and women.

Toys, kitchen wares, musical instruments, thousands of tins, tools belonged to wandering artists, clocks and much more are on display in this unusual museum.

Ettore Guatelli Museum: a space open to outdoor tourism
This year the Ettore Guatelli Museum has provided a discount on entrance fees including guide, at €5.00 dedicated to “zero emissions” visitors, meaning by this definition also cycle tourists who can have a guided tour, take advantage of spaces for parking and, on reservation, have a refreshment service or tastings.
The main defined itineraries, which include the museum, concern the Taro Park and the 19/bis Taro variant of the Via Francigena (Parma-Fornovo Taro) and the 19/bis Francigena hill variant which from Collecchio crosses the Boschi di Carrega Boschi Park, then Talignano, Segalara and Vizzola to get to the Guatelli Museum via the convenient cycle path.

The museum is member of Parma by bike club.
