Davide Andreani has collected over 10,000 cans of Coca-Cola from all over the world over a 24-year-period.
The 39-year-old, who is from Pesaro, Italy, has limited edition cans from almost every single country on the globe, except for Cuba and North Korea, who don’t sell the beverage.
Davide told The Sun that he has been collecting cans since childhood, stating, “I started to love collecting them when I was young.”
He then went on to admit, “My father would come back from a European business trip and give me the small 150ml cans from the aeroplane or cans with special designs that he had picked up in foreign cities.”
Discussing the most expensive can in his collection, Davide noted that he owns several gold cans, that are only given out to celebrate plant openings and special anniversaries.
Mr Andreani noted, “In the can world, the rarest gold cans can be sold for between $400 and $500.” He also owns cans that are special edition and were made for Italian employees.
He also owns a flat top “diamond” can, which is named because of its design, that dates back to 1959, as well as coke cans from Namibia, Nicaragua, and Puerto Rico, which pays homage to the 1984 movie, Ghostbusters.
However, Davide hasn’t completed his collection yet, and he has taken to his website to list the few cans that he doesn’t possess. This can be seen in the “missing” lists section of his website.
Davide has also run out of room and can’t display his collection in full, so he has to keep half of it in his garage. Mr Andreani remarked, “Unfortunately, the only downside is the space – I need so much. Now I can only display about half of my collection.” He even stated on his website that he would need an entire castle to show off his collection.
