The “Museum Peppone and Don Camillo” commemorates the fictional adventures of two rivals in a small Italian village - Don Camillo Tarocci, a Catholic priest, and Giuseppe ‘Peppone’ Bottazzi, the local Communist mayor. A series of stories was written about them by Giovanni Guareschi from 1946 until his death in 1968. Some of these stories were made into a series of black-and-white films between 1952 and 1965. These were French-Italian productions; they were simultaneously released in both languages and were very popular. The stories were set in Poteratto but the films used locations around Brescello so it became closely associated with the stories.
The museum is located in the San Benedetto Cultural Centre near Matteotti Square in Brescello. It was opened on 16 April 1989 due to the effort and enthusiasm of a small group of people from the town. It is now run by the municipal tourist board and receives thousands of visitors every year. It contains many relics from the films including Peppone’s motorbike, Don Camillo’s cassock, and other memorabilia.
