  • This museum is the result of 30 years of work. Cardenas who will welcome you and will answer all your questions about life in the sassi. The laboratory-museum recreates the environments of the houses of those who once lived in the sassi with objects, furniture and pictures. It's a real blast from the past. I recommend it to all comers. I also recommend reading the book tales of the Museum translated into English that collects testimonies of those who lived in the sassi.
