Description

Casa Grazioli is also known as Casa de la Béga (perhaps from Bäcker, baker in German), the nickname of Domenica Grazioli, the woman who lived there until 1991. Acquired by the Municipality of Peio with the intention of making it a museum, Casa Grazioli, a peasant dwelling in the village of Strombiano, is now the symbol of the Eco-museum of Val di Peio: a rare example of how local architecture evolved and how life was lived in the past. Necessary conservation work aside, it remains perfectly genuine: a simple house in which each room offers layers of history spanning centuries.
Imbued with stories of work and faith, the house offers a real sense of what everyday life was once like for men and women. Straddling three floors and the attic, the rooms include two old kitchens, their walls still blackened by smoke from the open hearths. The stone-built oven is still used to bake bread today. The main room houses a collection of agricultural tools. In the 19th century wood-panelled, stove-heated bedroom (la Stua) where Béga once slept, everything has remained as it was: the clothes in the wardrobe, the family photographs on the walls, even the primary school report.
