Piazza del Popolo, 1
Dates: from 10/11/2016 to 13/11/2016
Hours: 9am - 9pm
Pralines, cremino, bars, truffles, chocospread, almond brittle, choco chips, choco kebab, labs and appetizing tastings... all these, and much more, at Art & Ciocc. Il tour dei cioccolatieri, chocolate masters on tour in Piazza del Popolo in Ravenna from November 10 to 13.
Lombardy, Piedmont, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Umbria, Calabria and Sicily are the home-regions of "Art & Ciocc" chocolate masters, the itinerant festival that aims at promoting quality artisan chocolate all over Italy.
The chocolate masters are specialised in manufacturing chocolate objects (bags, hearts, shoes, mobile phones, festivity themes etc.) or in specific regional recipes, such as cannolo siciliano, Modica chocolate, Perugia chocolate, Turin gianduiotto. The city of Ravenna as well has seen the creation of its own chocolate praline: the Ravennino, a praline with pink salt and toasted pine nuts.
A brand new event for 2016 - the 9th edition of the festival - is the free lab Bean to Bar (from cocoa to chocolate): the processing of cocoa from the beans to the chocolate bars explained through toasting, pulverisation, refining, conching, tempering and modelling. The lab will take place in a special stand, while the Piazza will host operating machines and a chocolate master, who will describe each passage of the processing and offer tastings of the products during the different steps.
This year as well, the collaboration between the 37 stands of the chocolate masters and the runners of the Maratona Internazionale Ravenna Città d’Arte continues. On Saturday 12 November a tasty snack, “Pane & Cioccolato”, will be offered to the participants of “Conad Family Run” by “Art & Ciocc” chocolate masters and Sindacato Panificatori di Confcommercio Ravenna.
“Art & Ciocc. Il tour dei cioccolatieri” is organised by Confcommercio Ravenna and Mark. Co. & Co. in partnership with Ravenna City Council and Chamber of Commerce.
