Specials

The most visible feature of Fantasia Gelati is the large mural behind the counter, which is presenting many of the characters from Walt Disney's masterpiece "Fantasia".

Of course, the fauns and centaurs from "Pastoral Symphony"-sequence are not missing. But it's interesting to note that these characters weren't created for Beethoven's score in the first place. They were meant to star in a sequence which would have used Pierné's "Cydalise et le Chevre-Pied" as its score. However, after those mythological creatures had been drawn, the Disney animators couldn't tell the story they wanted to tell (with the big finale when Zeus is causing a mighty storm) with that music. So something "stronger" was required. In the end, Beethoven's Sixth Symphony, called "The Pastoral", was picked to show us a day on Mount Olympus.
