Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Milan – the Italian capital of #chocolate, June 19, 2017: Together with #davidecomaschi, winner of 2013’s World #chocolate Masters, we had the pleasure to inaugurate our 20th #chocolate ACADEMY center, accompanied by some of our senior management members, sponsors and renowned chefs.

Massimo Garavaglia, President EMEA, said in his #opening speech: "The future for #chocolate is bright, whether you look at it from an innovation perspective, or from a perspective of creativity, or from the perspective of new applications. Therefore, it’s really a good moment for all of us to celebrate.

The success of our recent academy openings in Moscow, Dubai and Istanbul makes me confident that our new academy in Milan will turn out to be very successful very soon too, and I am sure that with this we have created something really beautiful for Italy, and even more so for the city of Milan.

You know that I’m Italian. The special thing with this academy is that it will be Italian in the best sense of the word, led by #davidecomaschi, an Italian chef who has collected a great experience in recent years - this excellence and creativity are difficult to find and really valuable for us. In addition, it will be the first academy to develop recipes for artisanal gelato with real Belgian #chocolate.

I am convinced that this is only the start. Others may view Italy as a mature market and a difficult one, where you don’t need to invest, but I believe that this is the right moment to invest, and I am sure that the academy will be a way to draw a promising future for #chocolate in Italy."
