Cioccoshow is an unmissable event for lovers of high quality handmade chocolate that takes place in Bologna in November, since 2005.
This year the event will take place from 21st to 24th November in Piazza XX Settembre.
Four days to turn Bologna into a chocolate location, an event to enjoy and learn all the secrets behind chocolate-making, through stands, initiatives, courses and workshops.
Among the highlights of the 2019 edition, the collaboration with the Sant’Orsola Foundation for the arrangement of a lottery with “supportive” chocolate, as well as the introduction of different stands with gluten free and Vegan chocolate. Other than those offering chocolate Bean to Bar, one can appreciate the new current trend, which is namely to produce chocolate in a craftsman's workshop by selecting small batches of chocolate beans from plantations, creating one's own blend without the use of semi-worked material.
Cioccoshow promotes the chocolate specialties from all over Italy. An opportunity to reinforce the artisan identity of the city and the excellent standards of its products, in particular true handmade chocolate. It is also an important opportunity to learn about the historical, nutritional and scientific facts about chocolate in Bologna. The stands include chocolate laboratories and chocolate factory, tastings, general information. On Saturday evening, following the tradition, the event escalates in the Ciocconight.
The event is promoted by CNA Bologna and is organised by BF Servizi s.r.l.
