Not many people are aware of the special relationship between Turin and Chocolate. Everything started in 1560, when in celebration of the Ducal Capital's move from Chambéry to Turin, Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy served a symbolic cup of piping hot chocolate to the city.
Since then, many things have changed, and Turin has launched many master chocolatiers in the last few decades. In particular, this passion has helped local artisans to launch specialities that are now known throughout the world, the most famous of which are most likely Gianduiotto and Nutella.
Chocolate lovers are then welcome to celebrate Turin's success with chocolate in November, when CioccolaTò fair (Nov18-27) will celebrate chocolate with various events, tastings, exhibits and performances - all strictly chocolate-related. It is also an opportunity for chocolate enthusiasts to interact with the maestros of the chocolate arts, as well as for the important national and international brands to interact with the consumer.
