Gelato. A long standing love for this refreshing moment of pleasure. Viva il gelato
- Ice cream's origins are known to reach back as far as the second century
B.C. During the Roman Empire, Nero Claudius Caesar (A.D. 54-86) frequently
sent runners into the mountains for snow, which was then flavored with
fruits and juices.
Over a thousand years later, Marco Polo returned to Italy from the Far East with a recipe that closely resembled what is now called sherbet. Well since then Italy and gelato are deeply in love. All flavour you can imagine,
some as refined as rosemary, lavander and many others. From the Alps down to Sicily with its cassate, is an entire country delight.
