Selfie Museum

Selfie Museum

At the Selfie Museum in Torvaianica, with bizarre effects and lots of fun The Selfie Museum is located within the Zoomarine park on the outskirts of Rome, specifically in Torvaianica, a hamlet in the municipality of Pomezia. It is currently the only one of its kind in Italy. There are others in Los Angeles, Miami and Dubai. To give an idea of the trend, just think that every day, on average, around 100 million selfies are uploaded to social media. The museum offers a varied programme that includes a playful and educational itinerary covering 400 square metres with 25 settings in which to have fun taking all kinds of selfies. A few examples? You can walk upside down on the ceiling, fall into the air from a skyscraper or swim in a pool full of coloured balls. The museum is a kind of visual narrative, telling the story of how the selfie craze has evolved over the years. You can see historic selfies, dating back a few years. The museum is located inside the Zoomarine park, the largest marine park in Italy. The first selfie in history and Selfino, the dolphin ambassador When was the first self-portrait taken? It actually dates back to 1455, and was created by the French painter Jean Fouquet. The first group selfie, on the other hand, was taken in 1920 in New York. It shows five men sitting on the terrace of a building in the city. Today it is an iconic and very famous image that is part of the digital collection of the Museum of the City of New York. The ambassador of the Selfie Museum is Selfino, a dolphin who loves to film himself with a camera and beckons visitors to follow him. During the interactive tour, he is the first to invite newcomers to post the results of their shots on their profiles and also to post them on the official Zoomarine profile. If you are in Lazio, close to Rome, a visit to the Selfie Museum could be an entertaining way to spend a few hours in an extravagant and original setting.


Mirabilandia: the amusement park for young and old on the outskirts of Ravenna Between Ravenna and Milano Marittima, a stone's throw from the Classe pine forest, lies the small village of Savio/Mirabilandia. The reason to visit? The Mirabilandia amusement park, the Mirabeach water park and the Safari Ravenna zoological park to observe and study lions, tigers, giraffes, zebras, hippos and many other animals up close. With an extension of over 550,000 square metres, Mirabilandia is Italy’s largest amusement park and the one most able to renew itself year after year, guaranteeing even the most frequent visitors many attractions with every visit. Those looking for high-adrenalin experiences will find what they're looking for, but even those who prefer quieter attractions will leave Mirabilandia at the end of the day fully satisfied with a desire to return. The park is truly designed for everyone and you can have fun even without getting on one of the many attractions for all ages, enjoying the many shows such as the western-themed action show Lucky Lucy, the musical dedicated to Zorro and the show taking spectators on a journey through extravagant costumes and Hollywood classics, as well as the ever-popular Hot Wheels City stunt show. On summer evenings, on the other hand, the park's large central lake hosts the thrilling show The Last Pan, a water challenge between Peter Pan and Captain Hook with special effects and amazing evolutions on jet skis. Mirabilandia's most adrenalin-filled attractions Do you want an adrenalin rush? Experience the thrill of hurtling at the speed of an F1 car with iSpeed accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.2 seconds. If you are not afraid of heights, you can choose between Oil Tower 1 for an 80-kilometre-per-hour drop or Oil Tower 2 for a breathtaking drop. Why not try both? Katun, Europe's number 1 inverted coaster, will take you on a journey through time and space at 110 kilometres per hour along a course of more than 1,200 metres. And if you are not afraid to get wet, the world's highest water coaster awaits you in the Route 66 area of Mirabilandia. A child-friendly amusement park All the park's attractions have access limits at the entrance and a suggested minimum age for boarding, but if you want to play it safe without worrying about limits and frights for small children, Mirabilandia has an entire section dedicated to young visitors. At Bimbopoli you can find a two-storey horse-drawn carousel, a colourful playground, a fun little train that runs through the area, a funny-looking talking house and a flying roller coaster for children aged 3 and up. Since 2022, Nickelodeon characters have also landed in Mirabilandia. PAW Patrol, SpongeBob SquarePants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora the Explorer are available to young visitors for photos and shows that will bring more than a few smiles. Mirabeach, a tropical island a stone's throw from Ravenna There is no shortage of water attractions at Mirabilandia, but if you prefer a day at the beach among slides, wave pools and raft rides through the rapids, Mirabeach is for you. This large water park is located behind Mirabilandia, next to Lake Standiana. Two separate lagoons, white sand imported from Sharm el-Sheikh, green spaces, bars, restaurants and shops. For one day you will feel like you are on a tropical island and the fun will be guaranteed! A safari in the heart of Romagna If you want to experience a safari without straying too far from home and without getting on a plane, Safari Ravenna is just a stone's throw from Mirabilandia. Along a 4-kilometre route by car or on board an electric train, you will pass through small natural oases where many animals from all over the world live in harmony. You will be within a few metres of lions, tigers, hippos, zebras, giraffes, bison and camels, as well as crocodiles, kangaroos, baboons and lemurs, which you will be able to observe up close in complete safety. And to end the tour on a high note, you can't miss the reptile house designed by the best experts on the Italian zoological circuit, and it will quickly become clear to you why. Absolutely beautiful.
