Who among you has never dreamed of visiting a candy factory? In Puglia there is a museum where you can discover how are produced sweets, chocolates and candies.
It’s a sweet story the one that is told in the museum of the candy factory “Mucci” in the town of Andria.
Inserted in circuit of the historical italian Shops, the Mucci factory produces sugared almonds, chocolate and sweets, since 1894 when the young Nicola Mucci opened his factory in the center of town not far from the cathedral.
Since then the scent of vanilla and chocolate hovered throughout Andria, but are the “Tenerelli”, sugared almonds made with apulian almonds and hazelnuts from Piemonte coated in chocolate, the real attraction of the factory so much that, in the original home of the confectionery, it has been created a museum.
Housed in a building in Liberty style, in the street Gammarrota 12, the museum is composed of four sections: the first is dedicated to the tools, ancient and modern, to create sugared almonds. In the second area, a video illustrates to visitors not only the history of the factory, but also the machining of sugared almonds. The third section is dedicated to the equipment for making chocolate, while the last explains the steps for the creation of the candy.
The museum is open by reservation and the ticket costs 2 Euros. For information: https://www.museodelconfetto.it/en/
