La Gelateria construction - January 26 2021

Construction is continuing on La Gelateria at EPCOT's Italy pavilion, with more exterior finishing details being added.

The pre-fabricated building was brought onto the site in two sections, and exterior details are continuing to be added.

No word yet from the pavilion's dining participant Patina, or Disney, on when La Gelateria will open and what we can expect from its menu line-up.

To be fair, it is the Italy Pavilion.

The building fits in perfectly with the rest of the pavilion. Disney has been plusing things very nicely in Epcot like with Norway and France.

With some good landscaping it could look good

Good thing America is between Italy and Japan.

It would give them an axis of powerful attractions.

I've thought that too. Although they could have put the Gelataria basically where it is now and just faced it in the other direction, so you still had to enter through that area of the pavilion. That would leave the opposite side available as a ride entrance/queue.

Naw, it will be the Matterhorn between them ;)

maybe they would link the italy and german pavilions with a rhine river attraction between them?
