Time seems to have been standing still over here. Classes, mills, agriculture, forge, dairy, craftsmen's workshops describe the life of the past which we discover by means of tools and machinery that are worn away by the many gestures repeated over a thousand times. More than 40 rooms tell us about the life of a period in which everything was difficult.
