The Mechanical Gelato Machine is a hand powered device, which uses salt and ice to produce the sub zero temperatures necessary for producing artisanal gelato.
Inspired by traditional hand powered machinery the Mechanical Gelato Machine reinterprets the antique world of Italian gelato making prior to the invention of electric powered refrigeration.
The manual functionality of the machine allows it to transcend its strictly functional nature, letting  the process of Gelato making become a social experience a performance that attracts participation and creates  tradition, bringing the ritual of artisanal Italian Gelato to all.
