ROCCA GRIMALDA
Arrival in Rocca Grimalda. It has a wide territory but a small historical center, very well preserved. The first documents date back to High Middle Ages: in 963. The village, typically medieval, is situated on the top of a rocky high ground dominating the left bank of the stream Orba. From the top of the village is possible to dominate all the ways of communication , today as in the past, between the " Oltregiogo Pavese " and the Alessandria plain and, as far as you can see, the last offshoots of the Pennines and the hills of Monferrato.
MUSEUM OF THE MASK
Its creation is mainly due to the presence in Rocca Grimalda of a very ancient carnival tradition the " Lachera". To preserve and bring out this ancient but up to now alive and vital tradition, the collections hosted in the museum offer to the visitors the opportunity to notice a rich heritage of materials linked to ceremonial clothing : masks, dresses, hats : witnesses of a cultural consciousness typical of long lasting phenomena. Inside the museum you can also see modern accessories such as zips, synthetic flowers, plastic mirrors and sneakers which have substituted wooden or bone buttons, crepe paper flowers and the typical clogs. But it does not mean giving up the tradition but a necessary adaption to modern times : as every alive thing the Carnival too has to evolve and adapt to the needs of modernity drawing new life and vigor.
