in what's essentially the middle of nowhere
filled with things.
Stacia had been talking about this place for quite some time,
but I just wasn't so sure.
I agreed to go and see about this place anyways.
We took a fast train to Parma, and then a regional train to Fornovo.
And then we walked about 45 minutes to this odd museum.
I hope you notice me using that word loosely.
It is quite literally a museum of stuff.
Over the course of his lifetime, Ettore Guatelli collected things.
And then began organizing them to cover every space of his family home.
There are rooms of tools, rooms of ceramics, clocks, containers, and more.
Stacia took probably 5,000 pictures.
She was WAYYYYYYYY excited!
I thought it was definitely...interesting...
...and if you happened to be near Parma with an afternoon to spare this might be worth taking a look.
But, I would definitely email in advance to make sure they'll be open.
And when the guided tours will be. A tour is the only way to see around the museum.
And it was in Italian...but someone was translating for their friend, so that helped us out too.
Have you ever seen anything like this?
It's like "Hoarders" on crack.
If you want to go see it for yourself...
