Weaving workshop at the Marsh Grasses Ecomuseum of Villanova di Bagnacavallo

The Marsh Grasses Ecomuseum is a unique reality in Europe that preserves the memory of the ancient techniques of processing spontaneous vegetation, typical of the community of Villanova di Bagnacavallo, through a rich collection of artifacts and equipment. Those testifies and documents the original form of craftsmanship that between the 19th and 20th centuries had developed to become one of the main economic activities in the area.
The experience includes a guided tour of the museum collection, the "Villanova delle capanne" ethno park and a practical workshop of interweaving marsh grasses with the creation of a 19th century artifact to take home.
