A tiny museum

20140425-140412.jpg

A full year after we arrived, I finally made it across the river and up a hill to visit the Museo della Cartolina ‘S. Nuvoli’ (the Postcard Museum) in Isera. I have a bit of a thing about postcards, as the growing collection of pictures stuck to our lounge wall suggests, and had long planned a trip there. I was hoping for many a vintage Rovereto or Trentino postcard so was a little disappointed to discover the Verdi collection on display, that also included a few books and concert programmes. But we can’t always get what we want. The cute old man who owned/ran the museum seemed concerned about how quickly I got through the three rooms of exhibits, so took me back through to point out this painting here, and another room back there thinking that I must have missed something. So as well as finally making it to the museum, I also got a personal tour! and a broken Italian (mine) conversation about the olive wood necklace I was wearing. Not too bad for a Thursday.
