MUS! Museum of Livigno and Trepalle’s attempt is to witnesses the spirit of adaptation and art of getting-by, developed over the centuries by the inhabitants of Livigno
and Trepalle. Attempt after attempt they managed to find a fragile equilibrium under the harshest conditions of isolation, and the result of all these efforts is a town
with a language, traditions, food and clothing unlike any their surrounding town at a lower altitude.
Livigno is today a place where tradition and innovation combine. With wealth, progress and tourism, “getting by” is no longer necessary and surviving through the cold winters is no longer a problem. Located in an ancient house, the museum offers innovative tours to help tourists and locals alike to better understand this town history along with the energy and dynamics that led to the current present. “History” is not so far away, it is also what happened only yesterday and is likely to be more easily forgotten.
