The cabinet of curiosities
The arched cellars of the Manor shelter a strange Cabinet fenede Curiosities

Modern at the time of the nobles at the end of the Renaissance objects were collected and shown with a certain taste for the heteroclism and the new.

This place showed everything the navigators and explorers of the XVII and XVIII century brought from this far and unknown world, from these places not existing on the area maps discovered during their journeys. They exhilarated the imaginary and their curiosity. The cabinet of curiosities are the forerunner of our museums. They played a fundamental role in the development of the modern century even if it kept the layout/line of the popular belief.
