In the Bregaglian dialect, Ciäsa Granda means "big house" and, in fact, the museum is located in an impressive patrician house built in 1581.

Today a museum that attempts to reflect the people and the nature of this valley, this Ciaesa Granda (large House) is the property of the Societa culturale, who had decided in 1952 to preserve this imposing structure and establish a museum.

Built in the second half of the 16th century for Giovanni della Stampa, it retains a renaissance Hall, which to this day serves for meetings and lectures.

Works by the artists native to this valley can be admired. These are all members of the Giacometti family – Giovanni, the father of Alberto and Diego, as well as a cousin Augusto. In addition a very large painting by Willy Guggenheim (Varlin) is exhibited..


A great number of dioramas show the fauna that inhabites this valley. Other installations show the crafts practised in the past and the present.
