The Museo Naturalistico was the best 4 euro we spent in Italy. An amazing private museum established by Nicola Bloise, initially to education local children. There is no English signage but he gave us a personal tour using google translate. It is in a lovely part of a lovely un-touristy town in an un-touristy region and has a cafe attached. It is found at the base of the Norman Castle which has also been carefully prepared for the casual passing tourist.

I attended a poetry writing workshop here in May 2019. This little mountain village at the foot of the castle is charming. Nicola and all the others at Il Nibbio ensured our stay was as comfortable as possible. I stayed in one of the little stone houses that Nicola has so lovingly updated inside. I had some trouble with the water heater and as soon as Nicola understood the problem, he had someone out to repair it immediately. In addition to the little houses that we stayed in, we used the common area for our poetry writing workshop. We also had many meals while we were there. Everything was delicious and varied. I would be remiss to not mention the museums that are on the site. There is the archeological museum with many different native species represented. There is the insect museum with insects and butterflies. And the gem showroom and mueseum. Nicola also offers a shop where wine and other liquors can be purchased. Be advised that this is a village being restored but also being kept authentic. There are narrow corridors, steep uneven steps, and hilly ramps. This is to be expected in a mountain village such as Il Nibbio and is part of the charm of being there. There are still residents living there as well and it was not uncommon to smell the wood being burnt inside to keep warm. And to see laundry hanging outside. I am thankful to them to share their village with me for a short time.

I attended workshops in this area which was located near the castel. The rooms had an amazing view and were well equipped. The service and meals were excellent. The staff could not do enough for my group, so friendly and willing.

This incredible gem of museum was such a find! Tucked away in a tiny hamlet, small but creative and well done displays of local, regional and surprisingly far-reaching plant, animal and geological specimens in a most unique old castle/village setting. Several hours of pure delight!

I stayed at Il Nibbio "ospitalitá diffusa", a charming collection of old houses in Morano Calabro, renovated to receive guests, but maintaining their original conditions. It was such a lovely place to stay. The hospitality is coupled with a visit to the instructive natural history museum, very well developed and guided through. Il Nibbio has a bar where they have cultural activities over the summer and is finishing a communal kitchen for the use of the guests. The staff were extremely helpful and, by the end of the visit, we were like long time friends. A connection to preserve and a place to visit repeated times.
