Nuptial customs

a_usiNuzialiFrom gifts of bethrotal to the dowry contained in the great wooden chests, we follow the nuptial rite all the way to the setting of marital life: the home. A typical stùa – so is the sitting room called in this part of the Alps – has been reconstructed. Typically, a stua is panelled with planks of larch, often painted, which make the room much more confortable and cozy. The stùa which is reconstructed here – dated 1823 – comes from Valfloriana. Nearby, a bedroom has been decorated and furnished with materials coming from the western valleys of Trentino, with their particulalrly sober style. usi-nuziali
