Milan hosts gelato festival

With competition for best gelataio.

27 May-6 June. Milan hosts the travelling ice-cream festival again this year where eight master gelatai compete for the favour of the public with their quality ice-creams and new recipes.

The plaza in front of Milan’s Castello Sforzesco will be the setting from 12.00 to 22.00 each day. A €5 gelato card will entitle visitors to sample five tubs and to vote for their favourite.

Buying the card in advance on the festival website will give access to the reserved entrance, but cards will also be on sale at the site.

Visitors will watch the master gelatai at work in their kitchens, and can also take part in workshop lessons.

At the end of the 20-event tour, the master gelataio of the year will be voted in the finals, to be held in Florence in October.
