Lorenzo Zuccarello has had a passion for chocolate and confectionery ever since he was a small child. Which is why, after studying and picking up experience abroad, in 2001 he began producing his own cacao-based creations. It is not so much the lovely open-plan workshop as the windows of his shop that catch the eye with their displays of veritable chocolate and confectionery sculptures. Assisting Lorenzo in the business are his sister Valentina and his wife Aurica. They pride themselves on their pralines, which are available in a number of variations combined with the chocolate most suitable for each single recipe: from the Mito Azteco mono-origin bars, made with the finest crus from small producers the world over, to the dragées. Then come the chocolate miniatures, cream spreads, yeast-leavened goods, cakes and artisan ice cream. Special attention is devoted to the so-called “osmosis line” of select semi-candied fruit in sugar syrup vacuum-packed in classic bürnìe, or jars. We particularly recommend the marrons glacés in vanilla syrup. The shop also sells a veritable Collegno speciality: Certosa chocolates with rum or hazelnuts. Open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 8.30am to 7.30pm.
