Mission

    Reflecting its community and its history, the Museum of the City and the Territory can be defined as a workshop for the history of communities in the Valdinievole, with particular attention to the draining of the Padule of Fucecchio. It is an educational reference point and the base for tours that, revolving around the museum itself, concern the area’s cultural heritage. The museum sponsors research and studies on various aspects of the Valdinievole, launching an ongoing effort to raise awareness of the area’s cultural heritage through publications, meetings, conferences, and exhibitions.
