About Us

The Copper Museum in Force is the place of Doing and Knowledge. A immersive museum where the fruition is closely linked to the production of copper artifacts. But it is also a productive site, where the cultural experience is accompanied by the involvement in the processing. The copper processing site are rebuilt inside the museum: from the foundry to the craft workshop. The Copper smiths in Force mainly produced articles for domestic use. Copper conducts heat very well and has a high resistance to corrosion so many of the domestic utensils were for cooking food. The complicated stills known as tamburla in the Piceno dialect were built to make mistrà a local digestive distilled from wine.
