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 (in Italian: “gelato crema all’uovo”).
