PERUGIA, Italy (Reuters) - Four Italians have constructed what they believe is the world's first full-sized chocolate igloo but they have yet to solve an age-old problem. It still melts.

  4名意大利人已经用巧克力搭建出了一座拱形园顶小屋,他们认为这是世界上首座全部用巧克力建成的小屋,但他们必须解决如何保存小屋的问题,因为它将会融化。

  "It was a tough thing to do, much more difficult than building a normal snow igloo," Marco Fanti, 45, who used to race cars in desert rallies, told Reuters as he stood beside the 1.65-metre-high, dome-shaped traditional Inuit shelter made of some 330 dark chocolate bricks.

  小屋的建造者之一、45岁的马克·范蒂过去是一名沙漠汽车拉力赛爱好者。他站在这座高1.65米,用330块黑巧克力砖建成的因纽特人传统的拱形园顶小屋旁告诉路透社记者说:“搭建巧克力屋是一项艰巨的工程,远比建造一座普通雪屋困难。”

  Fanti and fellow instructors at a survival school took 23 hours working with tricky, crumbling chocolate material to construct what they believe to be the world's first chocolate igloo for the Eurochocolate fair in Perugia.

  在意大利佩鲁贾举行的巧克力节上,范蒂和他在生存学校的同事共耗时23小时将那些湿滑易碎的巧克力材料建造成了他们认为的世界上首座巧克力屋。

  They normally build one made of snow, for survival courses, within three to four hours.

  在锻炼生存能力的课堂上,他们通常在三四个小时内就能搭建出一座雪屋。

  Fanti said it has yet to be decided what to do with the 3.6- tonne igloo -- which is kept indoors and will start melting at above 30 C -- when the fair ends on Oct 22.

  范蒂表示,他们目前还在考虑在巧克力节于10月22日结束考虑后如何保护这座用3.6吨巧克力搭成的小屋,小屋目前正保存在室内,它在30摄氏度以上的高温条件下将会融化。
