Alberto Marchetti’s chain of gelaterias has grown slowly but surely since 2007, when he opened the first with his wife Alessia. He has always exercised complete control over quality at all his outlets (in addition to the four in Turin, he has others in Alassio, Alba and Milan). Sourcing of ingredients is as painstaking as production is efficient, and since lockdown Marchetti has ensured home deliveries within two hours of creaming. The two-storey place on Piazza CLN, opened in 2017 on the premises of the Blue Bar that featured in the Dario Argento film Profondo Rosso, is the most popular in the chain, but all the shops sell every flavour imaginable, many of which made with Slow Food Presidium products. Alberto’s latest brainchild is the classic Turinese Stić, sorbets-cum-ice lollies, some versions of which come in exotic flavours such as mango and passion fruit. Not to be missed, finally, the chocolate-flavoured Cremà, made from an exclusive recipe.
