The history of ‘920

It is a real dive into the peasant past where as soon as you enter the kitchen you see your grandmother’s ancient cupboard (1920s) where you could breathe in the scent of freshly baked bread preserved in square tea towels; the roof is completely made of light wood where the baskets have become special chandeliers. The plate hanging on the wall was obtained from the horizontal cut of an EPAL platform in which there are old ceramic plates, jugs and cups from the early 1900s when they were used as a “common plate for the whole family”. Going up the stairs to go to the sleeping area, small boxes appear framing the canvases where you can admire glimpses of the historical monuments of Massafra. The bathroom was created on the ancient cistern-well attached to the house (now brought to light: a large tromp-ail has been positioned on the bottom of the same which reproduces the water of the stream), on the ceiling you can see a lantern from the 1990s 20 which acts as a chandelier and a box of old ammunition which becomes a soap dish. Opening the bedroom door you see the pure white of the Flanders blankets and the headboard of the bed made from the portals of a chicken coop set in the wall and completed with an old iron door from the 1920s, they immediately give an idea of ​​what recovery and recycling; this, especially if you look at the desk and bench made from the headboard and footboard of a wrought iron bed called “crstìdd”. On the mezzanine you can see the two single beds adorned with crochet blankets with lace and a small bedside table made from the restoration of an old crate for transporting “Dreher beer”. The color points are given by the wool shawls that grandmothers used to warm during the winter months and which surround a scenario completely suspended in time!!
