Studio Ghibli museum (more photos)






In 1998, Ghibli decided to open a museum to share details on the animation process as well as highlight their work. Construction was completed throughout 2000 and the museum opened on October 1st, 2001. The design was influenced by European architecture such as the hilltop village of Calcata in Italy. It’s worth noting that Ghibli is pronounced with a soft “g” sound: jib-uhr-ee. It comes from the name of the WW2 Italian aircraft the Caproni Ca. 309 Ghibli (which was pronounced with a hard “g”). The Italian noun “ghibli” is based on the Libyan-Arabic name for the sirocco, or Mediterranean wind, the idea being the studio would “blow a new wind through the anime industry”.
