  • I state that this is not a review specifying the Museum, but generally about Macugnaga and the traditions of the Walser. Some members of the FEI told us a long history over a thousand years. Macugnaga (1327 m, 590 inhabitants, which in summer become 6 thousand) is a small village in the province of Verbania, known for winter tourism and not. It is surrounded by large mountains such as mount Rosa (4634 m), the second colossus of Europe after m. White, with the East wall which is the highest in the Alps, with 2,500 vertical metres: similar walls are only found in the Himalayas. The pastures were already popular in 999, that is more than a thousand years ago, but only for the summer. Towards the shepherds arrived 1260 from Wallis, who founded the country, eventually settling on a consistent basis. Were the "Walser" (from "Walliser, Valais), which resulted in the German language and customs North-Alpine. The walser culture is still preserved in the Museum of Borča. The old church (with the adjacent cemetery), Dorf (old village) and the old Linden tree are other important examples walser. One of the activities in the past was contraband, which allowed them to live in poverty. It was very tiring and dangerous because you had to walk across the border crossings around 3000 meters above sea level. In Bracket is the Museum of smuggling, with the "salian" what to wear "bricolle" of coffee and tobacco. And Malone a small altar in the rock remembers twelve smugglers dead in storms and under avalanches. The houses are made of wood: this material retains heat and is easy to find it in the Woods. Barns (where preserved rye and potatoes: only resources of nature) were built on the "funghi" from rock to prevent mice enter them. For many centuries have been exploited gold mines, finally closed in 1961. Were the most important in Italy. One of the mines (the Guja) is open to tourists.

  • I was fascinated by the Walser traditions. The House is beautiful and it's just as nice to soak in this culture that is disappearing
