The Giusti Museum offers an extraordinary journey through a priceless collection of objects and documents preserved for generations: from the ancient jars used for conservation, to the tools used over the centuries by vinegar makers, up to the first bottles and advertising leaflets of the early twentieth century. Among the most precious memorabilia are centuries-old casks, such as the "A3" cask with which, on the occasion of the Italian Exposition organized by the Savoy Royal family in Florence, 1861, Giuseppe Giusti was awarded with a gold medal for a “90-year-old balsamic vinegar”. Through documents and ancient objects of the trade, the Museum traces the history of Modena balsamic vinegar and its connection with the Giusti family.
The exhibition, displayed in 10 rooms dedicated to different themes, tells the story of balsamic vinegar, a story interwoven with the history of the city of Modena and the Giusti family.— Discover

A special performance through rooms of Giusti Museum
During the latest edition of #acetaieaperte, we shared the history of the family Giusti with a unique performance through the rooms of our Museum and of the Ancient Ageing Rooms. On the day dedicated to Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, the Giusti Museum showed the long and fascinating history of our Acetaia. From the tradition of donating Balsamic Vinegar to sons as a dowry, to the numerous journeys in Europe on the occasion of the Great Expositions, up to the first recipe to obtain a perfect Balsamic Vinegar.
