MUSEO DEI CUCHI-POPULAR HINSTRUMENTS MUSEO DEI CUCHI gathers a huge number of the so-called "cuchi", terracotta whistles that belong to the tradition The "cuchi" are little terracotta whistles; they represent an ancient tradition that hails from the prehistory. These popular instruments  had originally been invented to reproduce the call of birds; then they have began to assume other meanings, such as the passing from life, the protection from the bad spirits or they were used like propitiatory tool, or to keep raiders back from the cultivations. Most recently, they became a love pawn that  boys used to give to the girls, to let her know that he loved her.
The sound of the cuco differs according to the shape it is given. Nowadays, they have reached a high artistic expression, and represent a huge variety of animal and human shapes. They are also dedicated a showing that takes place in Canove di Roana on the 25th of april; a popular festival takes place in that village and many artisans sell their cuchi to the visitors.
The museum collects a very huge number of cuchi coming from all over the world, and visitors can find a real  testimony of the artistic craftsmanship, in every shape and color.
Curiosity: the venetian expression “vecio come el cuco” (old as the cuco) refers to the fact that this instrument is very old and hails from the prehistory.

Informații ulterioare
Roana is certainly the most heterogeneous among the municipalities of the Altopiano dei 7 Comuni. It consists in fact of 6 localities, also called “bell towers” because each village has its own parish church. These small towns are: Camporovere, Canove, Cesuna, Mezzaselva,  Roana and Tresché Conca.
Only a few kilometers separate the 6 suburbs from each other, so it is easy to walk or bike between one village to the other, even going alternative routes, forests and meadows.
From any village, unique landscapes and breathtaking views go far beyond the edges of the Altopiano, and the visitor can easily see, when the sky is clear, even the Dolomites and the Venice lagoon in the distance.
Roana's territory is largely covered by forests, fields, pastures and gentle slopes, and the average altitude of the villages is about 1000 metres above sea level; this makes Roana (along with the other municipalities of the Altopiano) the perfect destination for a relaxing mountain holiday.  
The sweetness of the mountain profiles, the fresh air and the endless green invite to spend the day outdoor, in a peaceful environment, where the good climate and the magical colors throughout the four seasons of the year make the tourist feel in peace.
Roana can offer a high level of accommodation and a great network of sports choices, from football and volleyball to tennis, from ice skating or summer-skating to orienteering, from swimming to hiking trees and mountains, not to mention the hundreds of kilometers practicable in summer by bike and in winter skiing and finally a little lake suitable for swimming.
History has left thousands traces during the flow of time: from the prehistory, with the Valdassa graffiti, to the years of the Venetian Republic, when the whole Altopiano was an autonomous federation inhabited by the “Cimbri”, a germanic population that settled down and built villages; from the first world war, when entire villages were destroyed and many forts and trenches were built to fight the Austro-Hungarian enemy, to the years of reconstruction and tourism and agriculture development.
Even the enogastronomic perspective is rich in the Roana surroundings: mountains host tens of alpine huts, where chees is still produced, as long as many other local products, and the lands offer little fruits, mushrooms and herbs in plenty.
Every inch of the territory of Roana and the other seven municipalities is rich in history, culture and local traditions. Many festivals (such as the Hoga Zait) and celebrations are organized in order to preserve the ancient way of life and to show visitors how the strong population of the Altopiano used to live, never forgetting its own roots and its identity.
