Historical notes

The museum is managed by the Pro Loco association.
At Brescello were shot five films, from 1951 to 1965, whose inspiration was drawn from the famous characters created by writer Giovanni Guareschi and played by Fernandel and Gino Cervi. In the museum are kept many relics linked to the production of the films (e.g. Fernandel's cassock, Peppone's motorbike, and so on). In the large square in front of the museum is placed the tank that appeared in a famous scene of one of the films; the bell that fell on Peppone's head is now hanging from a beam under the arcade along via Giglioli. The famous talking Crucified is now kept in a side chapel of the S. Maria Maggiore church. All the films are repeatedly shown during the visit. Tourists can buy Guareschi's books, copies of dvds of several films, the "Lambrusco Don Camillo" wine and local typical cakes as the "Spongata" or the "Zuffe".
