Ahh Italian chocolate! Much like other European countries, Italy is home to some of the largest confectionery companies in the world today. In fact, according to historical facts, chocolate has been produced in the Piemonte region for over three centuries, ever since the Duke of Savoy brought the delicious cacao product to Turin, Italy all the way from the New World. No wonder the oldest confectionery company in Italy today is the House of Savoy in Turin, which got their permission to open their first Italian chocolate house during the 17th century.
Then at the start of the 1800s, a citizen from Turin name Bozelli was able to invent a machine to mix vanilla and sugar with cocoa paste, and the city became a hub for developing new techniques in chocolate making and preparation. It also became one of the important exporters of Italian chocolate to other European cities. Now that you know a little bit of history about his delicious treat, serve yourself below!
