manor farm

The artefact described here is a manor farm located in Nusco, a small town near the city of Avellino, at the contrada Ascolella. It is accessible from the main road. It was built in the 19th century by local workers. It consists of two levels: a ground floor and a first floor, with an almost rectangular double span layout. The structure is made of stone masonry, with wooden roofs and a simple roof frame. The roof is double pitched with wood beams and roman roof tiles. The floor inside is made of stones with an irregular pattern at the ground floor, while it is made of wood with staggered joints at the first floor. This building has always been using as a private home and, although it is still used with this function, both structure and finishings are in bad conditions.
