Gelato, italian ice cream
Gelato knows no rivals. Both at home and abroad, it is celebrated as a symbol of superb quality. Italian gelato flavors are a reflection of seasonal fruit, cultivated in a territory that for geographic position and climate guarantees top selection, or representations of the best hazelnuts, chocolate, Zabaione and various creams to be found. Gelato is a sweet delicacy to be tasted in a cone or cup, as a snack or after dinner.
Through the wide choice available, Gelato is eaten year round in Italy, and boasts a long tradition. Bernardo Buontalenti, a native of Florence, introduced it to the court of Caterina de’ Medici in the mid-16th century, but it was the Sicilian Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli, who lived some hundred years later, to unveil it to the general public.
Classic flavors of this artisans’ product are evolving continuously due to the creativity of master ice cream makers. The result is an item with high nutritional value, thanks to utilization of fresh ingredients and processes that ensure their properties are maintained.
