Abstract

The article describes the first phase of the Ettore Guatelli "museum", with which the author is familiar through frequent visits and conversations with Ettore Guatelli himself, with whom a real friendship was built up. At the time Guatelli was both a collector and a dealer in objects of ethnographic interest (both tools and curiosity pieces) relating to the fanning world. The farm belonging to the Guatelli brothers was still in operation and, with the stalls filled with cows, Ettore made use of the spaces inside and outside the farmhouse to store his objects. He repeatedly complained about the local administrations and the 'Istituto per i beni culturali' of Emilia-Romagna: he felt he was misunderstood. He would have liked to sell all his pieces to have enough money to be able to collect spoken testimonies and carry out systematic studies with the help of others.
