  • This museum is supported by the voluntary nature of the set of Rails that with passion, skill and love for the city of Viterbo has the merit of highlighting the history, tradition and culture of this beautiful city. In the Museum you can see models of all the "machines" that have been designed and built to carry in procession, on 3 September each year, the statue of Saint Rose of Viterbo, Viterbo and worshipped by many foreigners; It seems that many Japanese come to attend the procession. The macchina di Santa Rosa may not exceed, for safety reasons, 35 meters high and weighs about 5 tons, the carriers alternating are about 120, selected after a tough test of stamina to carry about 150 kg of weight on his shoulders, in a specific way.

  • Small free Museum where you can see and better understand the devotion and folklore viterbese towards the Patron Saint, Santa Rosa. Very interesting also the footage of the procession. The girl who greeted us was also very helpful and told us so much about the celebration and about the world of porters of Santa Rosa. Well worth a visit!

  • Very interesting little Museum of the Association of carriers of Santa Rosa. Deserves stop by and watch the video explaining the tradition of Viterbo and of course, since you do not pay the entrance, maybe buy some souvenir like Thanksgiving ...
