Frosolone is a little village, typical of southern Italy, that kept untouched its centuries-old traditions, such as the forging of blades and the production of cheese.

Upon your arrival you will be welcome by Michele, your tour guide. Your experience will start with a visit through the characteristic historical centre. In the centre of the town, there is a museum complex formed by three different type of museums.

The first museum is “Museo dei Ferri taglienti” which has a permanent exhibition of the most famous steel items from Frosolone and other parts of the world. Here the expert iron craftsman will create a unique item while explaining the ancient techniques production phases. The processing of iron and the crafting mastery allow manufacturers to model iron in shapes not achievable with other materials.

The second museum is “Casetta del Pastore” , here a local farmer will make a typical frosolone cheese in front of you. You will learn about cheesemaking, how to turn milk into cheese. After that enjoy a cheese tasting with fresh cheese, fresh bread, ricotta and a glass of wine.

The day trip will end with a plunge into the past, to be exact at the end of the 19th century. The last museum “Museo del Costume e del Corredo Antico” is a praise to women, a tribute to the skills and to the work of women who, over time, have created extraordinarily clothes and accessories.
