Through a staircase that connects the back of the store with the underground laboratory, it's as if you step into a time machine. The museum is home to old machines for the production of chocolate, manufactured between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginnings of the twentieth century. These machines, still fully functional today, were operated by 40 people and covered every phase of processing and production. They are now a part of a true museum of chocolate, a testimony of chocolate's important and historic role in the city. Turin, the home of delicious, handmade chocolate.
