A space that looks at the recent past and the cultural identity of the Samnium territory, it is located in the area of Piano Cappelle and consists of a real centre of cultural promotion of the history of agriculture and agrarian technologies. It collects, distributed in ten pavilions, tractors and agricultural machines, coming from all over the world, above all rare specimens in perfect state of conservation. Here you can find a series of installations that reconstruct the environment of the traditional agricultural society, a system of plasma screens with educational footages and the magic multimedia “quadrisfera” that tells, in a complex system of video and mirrors, the evolution of the rural landscape over time.
In the guided tour the apparently cold agricultural machine comes to life, surrounded by figures of farm workers and masters. The setting up, that follows the stages of the introduction of the technique in the tiring work of the fields, is the scenery for a series of stories about traditional life and for the recovery of agricultural techniques and products disappeared or at risk of disappearing. The structure, which has a large outdoor theatre can hold and arrange shows and other events as well.
