Fodor's Review

This is the house where Carlo Levi, the author of Christ Stopped at Eboli, lived while in Aliano. (He'd been exiled here in the mid-1930s for his anti-Fascist views.) The house is home to two museums: the Museo Carlo Levi, which includes some of the paintings Levi did during his exile, and the Museo della Civiltè Contadina (Museum of Peasant Traditions), which documents peasant life of the past. Guided tours (Tuesday–Sunday at 11:30 and 4:30) include visits to both museums and discuss Levi's life under Fascism as well as the old farm implements. If you have the time, pay a visit to the Aliano Cemetery to see Levi's recently restored tomb.
