Casa Tomé

The past lives


Casa Tomé has over 650 years of local history. The modest, two-storey stone house with attached stable and hayloft has hardly changed over the centuries. Since approx. In the middle of the 18th century, no more substantial alterations and modernizations were carried out on it. For example, central heating and sanitary facilities are missing. Only cold water, the electric stove in the kitchen and the light in the Stüa and in the stable were installed.

The house reflects the modest demands and possibilities of the families who lived in it. This also applies to the last owners, the Tomé family. The sisters Luigia and Marina lived in the house until 1990. In 2002 it was acquired by the Ente Museo Poschiavino Foundation.

In 2007, Casa Tomé was opened to the public as the second museum seat next to the Palazzo de Bassus-Mengotti. There are two faces of Poschiavo society: on the one hand, the rural reality that shaped life in the valley until the last decades of the 19th century, and on the other hand, the few wealthy families who contributed to shaping political, social and cultural life in Valposchiavo.
