A cross section of middle-class life of the XIX century

The Bicocchi Palace, purchased by descendants of the Bicocchi family from the local council in 1980, has been recently opened to the public as a museum.

Documentary evidence attests that members of the family were part of the magistracy of the Commune of Pomarance on the 20th of April 1770.

The house offers a glimpse of 19th century bourgeois life and of a wealthy, religious and devoted family who held high posts in the civil service, administered landed property and who were involved in the up and coming glass industry.

The grand furniture, the elegant ceiling decorations, the precious fabrics and French wall paper bestow luxury and opulence to the interior and are the expression of a unique style of life so different from today

Bicocchi Palace and the Permanent Exhibition Warriors and Craftsmen

Near Casa Bicocchi (Bicocchi’s House) and housed in the rooms of Palazzo Ricci, is the permanent exhibition on Warriors and Craftsmen, divided into six rooms, each of which displays a different historical period, from the Paleolithic to the Renaissance.

On display, there are various important finds, like the Ciottolo di Lustignano that has engraved on it the image of a bison, one of the most ancient testimonies of prehistoric art in Tuscany. Another important find is the monumental Etruscan Stele of Pomarance (end of the 6th century BC). There also are many hand-made objects that tell us about habits and religious traditions of the communities that lived in this area over time.
