Your historic photos make my mouth water for good gelato.

A very special-looking place. It's nicer to imagine ice cream being made in this lab than in a big factory.

I agree with Dina, so much more appealing than a factory, the tile work is fabulous. Love the old shots.

Marvellous. I remember the Italian ice cream parlours in Germany when I was a kid, they have all but disappeared now...
