RePost: I need to go | Italian Fund Plans ‘Disneyland of Food’–Wall Street Journal

What the what? Yes. Yes. I just got back from Disneyworld. Yes. I’m still on the diet to get rid of that last pound of vacation eating. (Chili cheese dog and Dole Whip later? Yes. please. Repeat.)

Anyway, that said, Italy PLUS food? I mean, not that I don’t assume for the most part that Italy = noshing anyway, but this, this is a whole new level of focus luxurious extravagance.

I wanna go. NOW.



Eataly has 26 stores, mostly in Italy and Japan, but it also has branched into Dubai and Turkey, along with Chicago and New York in the U.S. Mr. Scordino said he is hoping to open the Bologna theme park in 2015, and he predicted its revenue in 2019 would be €86 million.
