  • The Museum of the chimney sweep is a small concentration of history of this ancient art, where a lady manners explains excellently and with passion the beginning of this heavy work and suffering almost always played by children who did were sent in all over Europe. A very special environment in beautiful "Villa Antonia" If you want to enrich your culture on a new topic it may be worth.

  • Your visit to this small but beautiful Museum was an opportunity to learn about and stop and think about an unexpected reality. The romantic image of chimney Sweeper little has to do with the sad reality of so many children who have found themselves facing a dramatic situation. Highly recommended, especially with children.

  • This museum is dedicated to the chimney sweepes: for ages (XVI-XX) the valley has provided young teenagers for this job in the metropolitan areas. And for some families was the only income available. The yearly event in August attracts sweepers from all over the world. The miseum in itself unfortunately is a bit poor in terms of evidences. It should be enriched and enlarged. But it deservs a visit.
  • Pleasant staff well structured with interactive parts. The building is very nice and helpful. Given the low price is worth spending an hour to visit.

  • By visiting Santa Maria Maggiore. Entry €2 where you are given a headset with sounds and songs that trace with an emotional journey with photos and more on the life of the chimney sweep. Lasted about ten minutes. To remember that every September there is a special event that brings together the chimney sweeps from various parts of the world

  • Museum sights: well organized, full of various kinds of material. Allows you to "live" the terrible living conditions of chimney sweeps, especially children. Touch with hand the misery, exploitation and despair.
