Antica Falegnameria [Old Carpenter's Workshop]

The Old Carpenter’s Workshop is part of the Museums System of Massa Carrara, created by the Communal Administration and run by the Metalliferous Hills Cooperative. It is a faithful reconstruction (1993) of a traditional carpenter’s workshop, and exhibits tools from an old workshop of Gerfalco (Montieri) that for five generations, from the late 19th century to 1990, belonged to the carpenters of the Forgeschi family. The tools were purchased by the Commune of Massa Marittima when the family closed the shop.
