Rural Life Museum

The “Museo della Civiltà Contadina” is part of a larger project, promoted by the Municipal Administration. Thanks to the enthusiasm and expertise of some volunteers (Association “Brugneto C’è”) and to the generosity of many donors, the Museum has rapidly begun to take shape - in an area of the “Braccianti di Brugneto” Civic Centre. The museum consists of equipment and a variety of tools used by farmers in the previous centuries.

The museum can be visited every third Sunday of the month, from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm, and during festivals in Brugneto, from 8:00 pm to 0:00 am - where, besides the visit, you may taste the typical gnocco fritto and salumi produced locally.

Guided tours are also available by previous appointment - minimum 15 visitors. Special openings for school groups.

Free guided tours. Bookshop.

Church of San Rocco


The building is based on a 15th-century Oratory - rebuilt in 1578 and again in 1760. It is located in “Via Matteotti” - the main street of the town - and its distinctive feature is the statue representing the “Madonnina nella roccia”. Actually, the people living in Reggiolo also refer to it as the church of the “Madonnina di Lourdes”. It has a high slender facade enclosed by Doric pilasters, completed by a curvilinear pediment. The belfry has single-light windows and a cuspidate roof. The interior is characterized by an unusual quadrangular hall, an elliptic dome supported by columns and semi-columns and a “cupolino” (smaller dome).
