Casa della Pierina: a house where time seems to have stopped at the beginning of the 20th century. Its owner, known in town as “La Pierina”, has always lived there with her father (a carpenter) until 2010 when she died at the age of 90. Her belongings show the typical lifestyle of the beginning of the last century, when people lived without gas and light, with an external latrine instead of modern sanitary facilities, and sleeping on a straw mattress of dry leaves. All the objects and utensils used daily by Ms. Pierina are still in the same place; among them,fashion notes and magazines, drawings, lace and ribbons used for tailoring, school notebooks, the books she loved to read together with opera librettos, all demonstrating her wide-ranging interests. This is how Ms. Pierina Bossetti lived until the new century began. Not only letters and notes are still on her desk recalling yesteryears, but also clothes, embroidered bedspreads, crockery of the 1920s, and rural tools of everyday life.This is a real house-museum where visitors can feel the atmosphere of the last century.
The house can be visited only during special events: at the end of June on the occasion of “Sapori e Tradizioni” (Flavours and Traditions Festival) and in mid-August for the “Sagra degli Scarpinòcc” (Scarpinòcc Festival); or by appointment, call +39 3317740890Via Quintavalle 8c - 24020, Parre (BG) Italia. firstname.lastname@example.org +39 331 7740890
