The permanent exhibition "Alla ricerca delle cose perdute" (In search of lost things), also known as the "Museum of Rural Life, Arts and Crafts", is located in Bonito, in Vico Masaniello, near the Church of San Giuseppe.
Set up by Gaetano Di Vito, it was inaugurated on 1 August 2011 in its current location, a building that was donated by the Pagella sisters, Rosaria and Ermelinda, to the author of the exhibition, in order to give the right space to his collection in a unique place. The exhibition is the result of the passion of this young man from Bonita, who started collecting a wide variety of antique objects at the age of ten.
Over the years, the collection has become richer and richer, including a large number of objects, some of them very rare and hard to find, related to different trades and different artistic expressions of the historical and social reality of Irpinia.
A tangible demonstration of ancient customs and traditions, the exhibition is a rich catalogue of tools belonging to the ancestors of the current population of Bonito, who have always been proudly devoted to agriculture and handicrafts.
