Museum of Tuscan Emigration
It documents how the Tuscan trades and genius have been exported by emigrants to all parts of the world
In the great castle that dominates the medieval village and the Via Francigena, a collection of photographs documents how the Tuscan trades and genius have been exported by emigrants to all parts of the world.
The collection tells the stories of anonymous laborers, women, and children, but also of emigrants who made their fortunes in the Americas and England.
Alongside the photos, the emigrants’ wares: the trunks, the cases of the street vendors, the shop-on-a-bicycle of the linens sellers and many objects brought back to the emigrants’ homeland from their places of work.
