The ethnographic museum of the Sienese Share Cropping, situated in the historic centre of Buonconvento, occupies the late-seventeenth-century rooms of an old owner’s granary, built close to the ancient circle of walls of the village and of which are still untouched both, the spaces and the building elements. Inaugurated in 2002, wants to document and bring back to life an already disappeared world by means of photos, original objects, literary passages, music, songs, films and documents of the archives; everything is shown and managed by specific multimedia stationing. The path is a trip which recalls places and evidences of a complex social and economic system, in which have lived most part of the Tuscan families until the middle of the XX century. The speaking figures of the owner, the bailiff, the sharecropper and the housewife introduce, everyone with their own point of view, the world of the sharecropping, with narrative rhythms and different dialectal terms to underline also the linguistic distance among the different social rules. The second floor is occupied by the suggestive farmhouse, which is really accessible and which recreates the humble atmosphere of a farmhouse and its domestic traditions. Among the most important activities of the Museum, there are also the learning -laboratories which, after some discussion with the operators and the meetings with the olds, allow the children of the primary and secondary school, to run through again, playing one of the fundamental experiences of the local and national historic culture.
