Carpigiani, Italian industry, specialised in producing ice cream machines located near Bologna.

Its history began in 1944, when the brothers Bruto and Poeri Carlo Carpigiani created the famous "Gastecnica S.a.s dei fratelli Carpigiani".They produced and patented the first ice cream machine, named "Autogelatiera".The technological growth in the 1960s brought Carpigiani to become the worldwide leader in the ice cream machinery, with the invention of the "hard-o-matic".

In 1964 an American secondary company was founded with the name Coldelite U.S.A., in 1971 Carpigiani bought Cattabriga (concurrent firm), in 1989 the Comenda Ali S.p.A. group bought the Carpigiani Bruto S.p.A.
