In 2009, residents of the village, decided to begin a census of the tools used by their ancestors.

After a careful restoration and recovery shall be returned to its original splendor, lawn mower Laverda Model 48 / A of 1934 (photo 1) used for cutting grass, hay and grain, flour rastrellafieno model in 1928 (photo 2) which served to the harvesting of hay cut and left on the field, the drill model Sima 7 discs (photo 3) of 1938 and the beautiful farm wagon (photo 4) made by carpenters entirely in oak and hauled by oxen.

The work was long and precision metal tools that have been completely cleaned and repainted with the colors of the time by hand.

Greater difficulty and effort required the wagon that was first washed then brushed refreshed with warm water, treated with ten liters of anti-moth and five gallons of stain neutral.

The cost of the four tools restauro was around 5.000,00 euros, entirely covered with funds of the Fontevecchia Association.
