Guided Tour of the Petit Monde Museum
In Torgnon there is an ancient village completely restored, the Petit Monde Museum, a magnificent example of rural architecture which consists of three buildings: a raccard which is to find nowhere else in the Valley, a grandze organized in three parts with the farmyard in the center where the wheat was beaten and finally the grenier used for storing supplies.
The buildings, built between 1462 and 1700, restored and enhanced, host the permanent exhibition “The labyrinth of memory”, which tells the true story of man, the origin, the evolution of the village, life and social organization of the inhabitants of this small ancient world.
In the upper part of the village there is also a chapel dedicated to Saint Rocco and the ancient mill, recently restored.
The village of Petit Monde in Torgnon is the most complete ecomuseum complex in the Aosta Valley built to protect and enhance the memory of the community’s roots, an enchanted place where time seems to have really stopped.
