And how nice that you are interested to discover the magical chocolate world made in Torino: one of the most interesting chocolate capitals and not less a fabulous city of art, history and culture. After all we are still talking of the first Italian capital, where the splendor and the elegance of that time stand still.

Why is Torino a must visit destination for chocolate lovers? 

It is necessary to go back in time to answer this question. As for many iconic culinary delights that travel through time preserving their fame, chocolate is for sure one of the most legendary ones that is very linked with the Royal House of Savoy, notoriously known for a very refined palate and a gourmet spirit. And so it seems that, when it comes to chocolate, we must give our thanks to Emanuele Filiberto I of Savoy. He was captain general of the Spanish army, and transferred the capital of his duchy from Chambery to Turin.

What does that have to do with chocolate? Well, according to a thesis, this Savoy may have been the first to make chocolate in Italy. In fact, in the mid-sixteenth century he would have received cocoa from the Emperor Charles V as a gift for the victory of San Quentin over the French. Then the marriages of the Savoy with the Infante of Spain and the French princesses, who brought with them cooks, pastry chefs and courtiers, made Turin one of the European capitals of chocolate processing. In 1678 the so called drink of the gods became more common, when Antonio Arri received the “gracious” royal permission to: “publicly sell the chocolate drink for six years from the date of the present”.

From then on, the chocolate mania truly bloomed!
