Ecomuseo del Casentino - Museo del Bosco e della Montagna [Casentino Ecomuseum- Museum of the Forests and Mountains]

Founded in 2002 with the contributions of the Commune of Stia and the European Community, the Museum of the Forest and Mountains is managed, along with the adjacent Skiing Museum, but the Stia Ski Club. Enriched by a series of educational panels, the exhibition documents the multiform activities linked to exploitation of the Casentine mountains and, in particular, the production of household articles and craftsmen's work in wood. The collection, which contains implements from the 19th and 20th centuries, also illustrates the systems and methods employed for transporting timber.
