Hunting

a_cacciaHunting is presented above all as a necessary integration to the peasant’s activities. Hunting was in fact necessary for the protection of the fields against birds and predators, and it also serves to improve the pesants’s family table as well as his income. So we are shown a sort of history of trapping, from simple snares to the usage of birdlime and nets. There follows more complex iron traps. Then we proceed to show mementoes of hunting as a pastime: splendid collections of rifles (on loan from the Museo della Guerra of Rovereto), trophies and other hunting paraphrenalia around the wide open fireplace, from Mezzocorona.
