Entitled to Franco Ferri, co-founder of the Municipal School of Ocarina, the Museo dell'Ocarina and of the Terracotta Musical Instruments, presents hundreds of pieces including musical instruments and work, photographs, records, sheet music, documents that tell the story of the small flute in terracotta, the ocarina, for which the name of Budrio has become famous in the world.
