A unique experience will satisfy all of your senses. A guided tour which lasts about 45 minutes during which you will learn the history, the traditions and the new and old processing techniques for making confetti (sugared almonds), chocolate and candies. The tour is supported by a short video that shows the most important stages of the actual confetti and dragées production and by the taste of some Mucci specialties, such as the famous “Tenerelli Mucci®”, secret Mucci family recipe and heritage of the city of Andria. At the end of the visit, it is possible to purchase Mucci products in the Confetteria (shop and showroom) annexed to the Museum.
Visit: Museo del Confetto Mucci Giovanni, Andria, Province of Barletta-Andria-Trani, Puglia
Definitely a must-see when visiting Andria city.
Park your car near the town square ‘Piazza Umberto I’, where you can stop for a quick rest (due to the presence of some bars), and reach the museum on foot for about 100 meters, following the road signs of ‘Museo del Confetto’ and enjoying the characteristic view of the historical center of Andria. A few steps from the Cathedral, you find the ‘Confetto Museum', recognized by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and numbered among the Historical Places of Italy. It is housed in a beautiful 'Art Nouveau' building, the original headquarters of the Mucci confetti factory, created in 1894 by Nicola Mucci.
Pleasant and cute girls welcome you and bring you to discover this wonderful sweet world. Starting point is at the ‘Confetteria’ (shop and showroom), where for about 15 minutes the story of ‘Casa Mucci’ and the traditions related to the ‘Confetti’ are told, together with the tasting of the most typical and historical Mucci specialties, among which the famous “Tenerelli Mucci®”. Immediately after, the girls will guide you through the four sections of the museum in a tour which lasts about 30 minutes. In the first room, dedicated to the confetti, in addition to documents, sieves, strainers, macerators, molds for the packaging of the marzipan fruit, the copper basins and branlantes used for the confection are noticeable. In the second room a video illustrates the most important phases of the current processing of confetti and dragées. The third room contains machinery, molds and equipment for processing chocolate, including a vintage tempering machine and a melangeur. In the fourth room there are the machines with hand-rolled bronze rollers for the preparation of candies. The tour concludes in the ‘Confetteria’ (shop and showroom), where you will be able to purchase Mucci products.
An extraordinary experience you will never forget!
