History and Legend of Gelato in Italy


Italy has a long history of “gelato” from the Roman Empire, the “modern” history of gelato begins in the Renaissance with alchemist Cosimo Ruggieri, who is credited with creating the first gelato flavor at the court of the Medici family in Florence, the fior di latte. The architect Bernardo Buontalenti seems to have invented the egg cream gelato (gelato alla crema d’uovo).


Gelato Course (with interpreter in English or Spanish)

At our ‘Gelato course’, for our first week, there are training sessions on gelato where you will study the skills of making, the secrets to the tastes and the how-to of the making of gelato.
In the second week and after, you will be able to have an experience as a clerk at the actual Gelateria. You will not only be able to study about gelato but also learn about the preferences of the local citizens and the know-how of the correspondences at the shop.
