The Museum of Peasant Civilization is very interesting, and is just ten kilometers from Granarolo: in a exhibition space of over 2000 square meters, a permanent exhibition has been set up that highlights the importance that agriculture has had, and continues to have, for this land. The museum is divided into four sections, each one dedicated to one of the fundamental products grown here: grape, wheat, rice and hemp, as well as a vast display of vintage agricultural tools and machines.
Being in the center of what is internationally known as Motor Valley, Granarolo is really the perfect place for all motor lovers! Its streets are often a destination for motorcyclists and drivers looking for routes full of curves and breathtaking views, which have inspired the many producers of the most famous sports cars and motorcycles of all time. But in addition to the great brands, here in the Motor Valley you can also find real pearls, among them the Moto Pasquale Mesto Collection: named after its creator, this collection picks up many historical models of Italjet, a company founded by the Bolognese Leopoldo Tartarini, also known for having traveled around the world on his Ducati. The collection traces the success of Italjet, among which you can certainly count many sports and trial bikes, some racing bikes and even some prototypes. Some record-breaking models are interesting, such as the Record Cyclear 250, which won fantastic records on the Monza track in the '70s. For those who are more interested in cars, not far from Granarolo is the Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum, which traces its life through a rich display of his creations, flanked by a remarkable photographic archive. The 9000 square meters of the Museum host the entire industrial production of Ferruccio Lamborghini, from the first Carloca tractor, from 1947, to the most important sports car models of the following years, such as the Miura SV or the Urraco, but also the famous Fiat Barchetta Sport, modified in such a way as to be able to participate in the Mille Miglia of 1948. A little curiosity: did you know that the Espada, characterized by the gull-wing doors, was the inspiration for the Delorean, the machine used in the film “Back to the future”?
