Parco e Museo Carlo Levi

The house where Carlo Levi, the author of Christ Stopped at Eboli, lived in Aliano now contains two museums: the Museo Carlo Levi, which includes some of the paintings Levi did during his 1930s exile, and the Museo della Civiltà Contadina (Museum of Peasant Traditions), which documents peasant life of the past. Guided tours (call ahead for seasonal times and to reserve a place) include visits to both museums and discuss Levi's life under Fascism as well as the old farm implements.

If you have the time, visit the Aliano Cemetery to see Levi's tomb and/or hike the Calanchi Mountains along one of five trails.
