The ethnographic museum of Malborghetto is housed in the Palazzo Veneziano, an elegant 17th century building, and one of the most interesting examples of a bourgeois house of the Val Canale for its history and architecture. The facade of the house has an elegant trifora window and a stone doorway. Within, decorated with frescoes depicting scenes of hunting and court life, the exhibition unfolds over three floors, divided into sections. It starts with the prehistoric and ancient history of the Val Canale before arriving at the mining activity of the Raibl mine (iron), the extraction of timber from the forest of Tarvisio (the largest state-owned forest in Italy) and the customs and rituals of the Valley, still practised today, and whose origins date back to the happy coexistence of three cultures: Italian, Slav and Germanic. To mention just one of these: the tradition of Krampus, the unsettling devils that accompany Saint Nicholas through the streets of the villages on 5th December of every year.
