Go down in Corsican history stride along the 14 rooms of our museum of popular arts and traditions.
The museum Anton Dumenicu Monti, created 40 years ago, is located in the centre of Cervione, near Saint Erasmus cathedral. Essentially ethnographic, this museum of art and popular traditions shows the lifestyle of the local population from the late 18th to the early 20th century. The collections are exhibited in fourteen rooms in the old seminary of the bishops from Aleria, built in 1578 by Bishop Alexander Sauli, who established residency in Cervione.
As Corsica was formerly an agricultural region, most of the items on display are related to themes such as agriculture and breeding. You can discover the everyday life of the “elders” through the reconstitution of a former typical Corsican kitchen, a forge, various tools used by the black-smiths, weavers, shoemakers and other saddlers, and also the replica of the 173rd Infantry Regiment printing house, rebuilt with its Marinoni press. One room is also dedicated to sacred art.
A multilingual audio guide is offered, as well as guided visits for groups (under prior reservation).
From Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 12 am and from 2 pm to 6 pm (7 pm during summer).
