Restaurants have to work hard to draw in custom – and none work harder than Bruno, who has had a family restaurant outside Treviso in northern Italy for the last forty years.
So what did Bruno do – stand out the front of the restaurant with some samples? Handing out flyers? Or spending his adult life welding together a full-sized theme park to try and entice customers inside?
Well, from the first giant iron slide put up in the 1960s, it was clear that the restaurant could put their sample tray away forever: rope swings, hand-cranked swing sets, a hand-woven trampoline and all manner of other rides have been welded together.
A new 11-minute film has been put together to document Bruno’s work in the forest. We’ll be sure to make the visit next time we’re in the region…
