Museo Valdese (Torre Pellice)
Via Beckwith, 3 - 10066 Torre Pellice (To)
Born of the initiative of the Tavola Valdese in 1889, as part of the bicentennial celebration of the “Glorioso Rimpatrio” (the “Glorious Return”) when the Valdese were granted religious freedom, the Musée Vaudois is dedicated to preserving the patrimony and cultural memory of the Valdesian people. Today located in what was once the boarding school, the museum is divided into two sections: one historical and the other ethnographic. The latter tells the daily life of the community through their work, school, and the different seasons that determined the rural activities. The Museum, under the auspices of the “Fondazione Centro Culturale Valdese” “Valdesian Cultural Centre Foundation”, is at the forefront of a system that covers other places of special symbolism to the community, including a dozen museums in the mountain region of the Valli Pellice, Chisone and Germanasca (Pellice, Chisone and Germanasca valleys).
