Museum Ciäsa Granda

In the Bregaglian dialect, Ciäsa Granda means "big house" and, in fact, the museum is located in an impressive patrician house built in 1581.

An underground exhibition hall was added to the original building. Guests visiting the exhibition can admire numerous works by artists Giovanni, Alberto and Diego Giacometti as well as Augusto Giacometti and Varlin.
In the museum, visitors can discover the secrets of rural life. For example, there is an exhibit showing how butter and cheese were produced and another exhibit demonstrates where and how laundry was done. Also on display, are tools and instruments used for slaughtering animals and producing sausages. In addition, you can see various craft-based replicas, such as a weaving workshop, blacksmith's forge, a farrier's workshop and a "laveggiaio," where they used to mill soapstone to make pots. The confectioner and bakery exhibit is well worth a visit. Both were the professions of many Bregaglian migrants. For chestnut lovers, the exhibit showing a chestnut drying hut is not to be missed. Chestnuts have always been a local product of Bregaglia Valley.

Ciasa Granda has an outstanding geology collection. There are also rooms dedicated to local flora and fauna. Animals are presented in a simulated natural environment.
The museum is located in Stampa, near Hotel Val d'Arca.
