The ice houses of the Boboli Gardens - the interior

Video in Italian | Enter with us inside the old ice houses of the Boboli Gardens

Enter with us into the large ice houses of the Boboli Gardens.
We have already talked about the bizarre domed buildings on the Boboli hill, which used to provide ice to the Grand Dukes' court.
Today we step in to see the functioning of the cooling system, which poured ice-melt water into underground pipes that allowed to preserve food and beverage.
