Among the most unique and sweet tourist itineraries of Apulia there is the Museum of Confetti in Andria. This sweet Museum, recognised by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities as a historical site and member of the “Locali Storici d’Italia” circuit, not only has become a reference point for Andria’s inhabitants very close to the ancient Casa Mucci, but also for tourists and strangers coming from everywhere.
The Museum of Confetti is housed in a liberty style building, the original location of the confetti‘ s factory where the founder Nicola Mucci opened the first workshop in 1894. This Museum is the result of patient and passionate research, it safeguards a patrimony of history , knowledge and traditions, along with a collection of priceless documents, tools, machinery and archaeological industrial finds, which not only tell the history of confetto, chocolate and sweet making, but also recount the age old enterprise of the Mucci Family, forever striving to guarantee the best quality, abiding by the original recipes and high standard handmade confectionery.
Some specialized tour guides accompany you during the discovery of the Museum in a guided tour which lasts about one hour. During the visit it is also possible to see a short video that shows the most important stages of confetti and dragées production and to taste some Mucci specialties such as the famous Tenerelli, made with almonds from Puglia and hazelnuts from Piemonte, covered in a double layer of pure chocolate.
