The collection of ancient units of measurement, regulated by the Savoy through edicts issued in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries can be seen in the museum since its opening. The ancient methods of measurement were replaced by the introduction of the decimal metric system established at the end of the 18th century, and made official in the Napoleonic age; not until the Italian  unification, in 1877 were comparison tables between the two systems approved  but  the old measurements were finally abolished in 1890.
The Bocale (1/2 pint) and the Quartino, measures for the liquids have a truncated cone shape , are fused in bronze with the date and denomination in relief.
The emina or mine was the capacity measure of the arid produce (grains, cereals, etc.): cylinder-shaped 2/3 of the diameter, in wooden boards marked and reinforced by vertical iron bands, with a cross (flat) at the mouth and a rod to clean the surface. The mezo and the scudela were its submultiples.
In the museum  we can also see samples  of the replacement measures introduced by the new system: the Decalitre and the Double Decalitre with their submultiples Litre and Double Litre, similar in form to the mine and mesa mina, but made of painted steel.
