A Gelato Museum where to learn how to make a perfect ice cream
The Gelato Museum Carpigiani is broadly recognized as a center of cultural excellence dedicated to the understanding and study of the history, culture, and technology of gelato
After spending so many years abroad, I think today it is more frequent to find foreigners associating Italian culinary traditions to "Gelato" rather than to "pizza" and "spaghetti". In case you are interested in learning whether there is a reason for that or not, please be aware that in Italy, in Emilia Romagna, there is a beautiful Gelato Museum ready to welcome anybody interested in discovering the history behind this delicious art.
Inaugurated in September 2012 in Anzola dell'Emilia, the Gelato Museum Carpigiani is broadly recognized as 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 evolutions over the centuries".
The best way to enjoy this beautiful museum is by taking part to one of its guided tours. The experiences this place can offer are many, therefore it is recommended to pay attention while selecting the one you think will be more appealing.
