The museum is located in the former Magistrate’s Court and collects the evidence of an important craft of Cervaro that had 30 goldsmith workshops active until the early decades of the 1900s, and that were spread throughout the town.
Inside the museum you can find machinery, moulds and equipment illustrating the phases of the working of gold. On display are collections of jewellery products, made in Cervaro between the end of 1600 and 1900, from family donations.
Among the most common operations is gold filigree and moulded, moulded chains and fretwork, signet rings and those, characteristics, with the two intertwined hands.
A “goldsmith’s shop” has been created, where the visitor can follow the various stages of the processing of gold with the guidance of a master craftsman.
