Bologna, 3 April 2012 – One hundred years ago, Poerio Carpigiani – founder of the company Carpigiani along with his brother Bruto – was born. The company was founded by the brothers to sell the famous Autogelatiera, invented by Bruto, and today recognized as one of the 34 fundamental inventions of the 20th century. It is only fitting that this important centenary be marked by the establishment of the Bruto and Poerio Carpigiani Foundation. Carpigiani Foundation has promoted the Gelato Museum.

“The foundation’s mission is to promote gelato culture throughout the world. Artisan gelato is a food that has a long and illustrious culinary tradition,” says Andrea Cocchi, General Director of the Carpigiani Group and founder of the Bruto and Poerio Carpigiani Foundation. “The foundation serves to honor the heritage of Bruto and Poerio Carpigiani, the two Bolognese entrepreneurs who contributed to the global diffusion of artisan gelato technology, culture, and business. Their memory deserves to be kept alive,” explaines President Romano Verardi “as they are symbols of progress, innovation, and new cultural advancements.”

  • Thoroughly enjoyable visit. If you have time I highly recommend doing the masterclass. You learn a lot more about the product and is a fun experience making Gelato yourself from scratch. Friendly English speaking staff and good value for money for Gelato fans!
  • The insight you need into this great food. A peep into the history of gelato
  • Interesting and educational tour about Italian gelato. One thing is very clear to one after the visiat - gelato is not ice-cream! It a completely different beast...
  • Discovered by chance on the internet looking for a fair of ice cream, the Carpigiani Gelato Museum is unique in its kind. Delicious ice cream and professional staff, friendly and approachable. Great idea to give a chance to the public to learn in a short time some history on ice cream, how to distinguish and how to prepare it. The whole environment is well maintained, clean and engaging.

  • Just a few words: Carpigiani is the center of the world of ice cream!
