"The museum celebrates Gruppo Cimbali's centenary,” says Maurizio Cimbali, Group President, “an all Italian story which has managed to carve itself out a leading role on the international scenario over four generations. It is an important goal for the company but most importantly leadership based on knowledge and on people who are passionately committed to promoting one of the most ingrained customs of Italian style, that of coffee and cappuccino. MUMAC houses and displays exceptional technological and style content and pays continuous attention to contributing to the development of the espresso coffee and cappuccino culture throughout the world."
MUMAC features over 200 vintage coffee espresso machines for bars, bringing together the Enrico Maltoni and Cimbali collections. The former, the most comprehensive and best kept in the world, consists of superb coffee machines protected against the wear and tear of time.
Along with the machines, the museum has been further enriched with an historical archive of over 15,000 carefully selected and catalogued documents which will be accessible to public researchers, a classroom for holding training courses, a laboratory for sensory tests and a range of different areas set up to host special events and projects.
