The permanent exhibition is set out in three rooms filled with stories of emigration that the people of Roasio have endured over the years.

Documents (passports, employment contracts, letters, cheques, tickets and much more) and numerous photographs collected in the first two rooms of the museum tell us about their work, their travels and everyday stories: Fragments of life made not only of struggles, hard work and nostalgia for their Country of origin, but also of pastimes and celebrations. 

As 95% of people who emigrated towards the African continent made their way back to Roasio at the end of their working life, the third room of the Museum houses an interesting collection of African objects, including ritual masks, statues, musical instruments and jewellery, brought back to Italy by emigrants returning home.

books and magazines available for consultation


The Museum doesn't only collect documents and photographs, but it is also interested in gathering books, thesis and magazines involving migration.

This collection, along with the identity records so far gathered, are available for consultation to anyone who requests them.
