My fascination with collections and people who collect steered me to Ettore Guatelli, a school teacher from Parma who amassed a collection of everyday tools and objects –– pincers, hammers, spades –– vast enough to warrant its own museum. Please have a look at these artfully curated displays; one room contains hundreds of baskets hanging from the ceiling, while another features a wall of shoe horns arranged in a beautiful fan. “The beauty of the everyday life events we have always neglected and their inner value that we have not recognized, they were disclosed to us by a simple man from the Parma’s countryside. His name is Ettore Guatelli.” –– Werner Herzog.
