For the first time, I am worried that gasoline is at the end of its life cycle. Gas pumps already have landed in the museum.
From a 1930s pump used to fuel Benito Mussolini’s private fleet of cars to a pump used for cigarette lighter refills; the Museo Fisogni in Milan is the most complete collection about the service station (as per the Guinness World Record 2001). Gas pumps even have their own genre in the world of collectibles. They are called “petroliana,” says the Wall Street Journal.
The Museo Fisogni , owned by Guido Fisogni, is in a warehouse near Milan (Italy), but it is looking for a new home. Next time you are in Italy, drop by. The only thing the museum does not have is gas for your car.
