A remarkable collection, acquired in 1997, which completes and enriches that of Father Louis Doazan.
Antoine Peraldi (1917-1997) was born in the village of Grussettu Prugna in southern Corsica. After his secondary studies in Ajaccio, he ran the family mill in Urbalacone from 1942 to 1967, taking over from his father, a professional miller and producer of flour and oil. His job led him to travel all over the Taravu region and to discover all the aspects of the agro-pastoral culture. This is where his vocation as a collector was born, which then led him all over Corsica.
His meeting with Father Louis Doazan was the prelude to a long friendship marked by a common passion. He ended up creating a small museum of carefully selected pieces. After his death, his widow and children wanted this collection to be preserved in a museum in Corsica and it was acquired by the Collectivité territoriale de Corse in 1997. This remarkable collection, assembled over nearly 50 years, complements and enriches that of Father Louis Doazan.
