In 1560, Duke Emanuele Filiberto of Savoia celebrated moving his capital from Chambéry to Turin by serving the city a symbolic cup of steaming hot chocolate, initiating Turin’s eternal love affair with chocolate. Over the centuries, the fertile imagination of zealous master chocolatiers created some tasty items like the “gianduiotto”, cocoa and hazelnut cream, ice cream cones.

Nowadays, Turin and its hinterland are one of the World’s major chocolate-producing districts, making 85,000 tons, which is almost 40% of the total. Alongside great industries like Ferrero (d'u know Nutella?:), Caffarel or Streglio, there are also craft businesses who continue the Torinese chocolate-making tradition, and successfully keeping up to date with new tastes and trends. A commitment encouraged by the great names of subalpine crafts including Stratta, Baratti&Milano, Guido Gobino and Peyrano.

Every year in March, Turin has an annual chocolate bash called "Cioccolatò": two weeks of chocoholic fun, events, tastings, shows and performing arts.

More than 1 million visitors every year enjoy with Turin's Chocolate.
