The Museum of 60,000+ Everyday Objects

The Ettore Guatelli Museum near the city of Parma, Italy, houses a collection of more than 60,000 used artifacts that reflect the importance of the things we used everyday: tools, toys, kitchenware, clothing, clocks. The collection was begun by Ettore Guatelli himself, and the objects are now artfully arranged around his estate.    

Concerning his collection, Guatelli is quoted as saying, “These are humble things, sure, but some of them are incredibly ingenious, poetic in their humility, and loveable. That makes you want to understand who was there, and what was behind these objects. It makes you want to know in what way and under what circumstances these items were used.”
