Entering this living history museum, visitors enter the world of a Count, a Countess, their children and all the family and servants living in the mansion. In the 19th century, Corfu had been greatly influenced by the Venetian, French, and British that had conquered the island in the past and had contributed a lot to the formation of the local culture. In fact, over centuries Corfu became the intellectual and cultural center of the Ionian islands, while trade, economy, and arts also flourished.
With animated figures of robotic technology, absolute representation of internal decoration, old furniture, clothing of those times, sounds and smells, Casa Parlante depicts family life of that era: there is the Count reading the newspaper, the Countess welcoming guests for tea, children playing music, the cook cooking at the kitchen and other scenes of the 19th-century daily life.
