It’s only logical to find an ice-cream museum in Italy – this beautiful European country gave the world so much fantastic food and wines we can’t even count them! If you’re longing to visit the boot-shaped peninsula you can find your travel buddy at yec.com – and then you can visit the ice-cream museum together!
Gelato museum (gelato is an Italian word for ice cream) is relatively new – it was opened in 2012 but that doesn’t make it any less tasty! Here’s what the official page says:
“Inaugurated in September 2012, is a center of cultural excellence dedicated to the understanding and study of the history, culture, and technology of gelato and the expertise of the innovators who drove its evolution over the centuries.
From its origins to today, the museum features an interactive tour that highlights three principal themes regarding gelato: the evolution of gelato over time, the history of production technology, and the places and ways it is consumed. The museum’s 1000 square meters are home to 20 original machines, multimedia presentations, 10,000 historical images and documents, precious tools and accessories, and original video interviews.
The Gelato Museum is located in the Carpigiani headquarters at Anzola dell’Emilia, within an industrial space which has been transformed into an innovative structure dedicated to the study and analysis of artisan gelato’s history.”
