Forest Museum Val Fondillo Forest Museum Val Fondillo

Located inside the warehouse once used for beech wood carving, the museum gives information on Val Fondillo, its history and its importance for Opi’s economy.


 

 

Val Fondillo boasts of prehistoric, pre-Roman and Roman presences, whose evidences were found in excavations carried out in the last decade.

The richness and fertility of the forest allowed for abundant harvesting of firewood and timber, used both for house heating and for producing furniture and railway material.

The valley has been for centuries the realm of lumberjacks and muleteers who, braving the steep slopes, have provided wood for the warehouse, the latter initially a private property and then (in the 60’s) run by an Opi’s cooperative  at that time the most important enterprise of the valley.

The museum is open during the months of July and August and on weekends, with hours 9.00-18.00.

Entrance ticket:

Individual: 2 €.

Groups of more than 5 persons: 12 €.

Children up to 10 years old: free
