The first museum dedicated to the history, culture, and technology of artisan gelato has opened its doors. Located in Anzola dell’Emilia in Bologna, the Gelato Museum will showcase all things gelato. Visitors will be able to see the first hand-written gelato recipe, around 10,000 photos and documents, artisan tools and a selection of historical gelato making machines.
Built by the Carpigiani Group, a renowned Italian producer of gelato machines that are used globally, the museum required an investment of approximately $1.5 million. According to Carpigiani, the project is designed to help promote Italian gelato worldwide and to become an international point of reference for the product’s history.
