Gelato Making Experience

October 18, 2018

Be a Gelato Chef for a day…

Summer ☀️ is almost over, but it doesn’t mean that fun needs to go away too. If you are a gelato lover  looking to try new things and escape from your daily routine while having fun, then our Gelato Making Experience is for you.

We created these customisable activities to show anyone interested how original gelato is really prepared in Bologna. When we organize a workshop, the vibe is the best. No matter your age, you can easily have an amazing time getting your hands dirty and learning the whole process.  You just need to be a gelato lover.

Diving into the gelato culture… What’s all of this about?

Recently, we decided to open our laboratory’s door to the public for anyone to have the opportunity to learn and explore behind the scenes of how an authentic, artisanal gelato is handcrafted. How the ingredients and temperature; during the making process have an impact in the final result, to create a unique flavour and creamy texture.

In here, instructed by our friendly and passionate master chefs, you will learn everything about the ‘gelato bolognese’ culture, along with all the elements regarding this ancient tradition, that dates to 500 years ago.  

The special thing about having a handcrafted gelato is that even a single scoop is more than enough to stimulate your senses and emotions as soon as the cream touches your palate. It’s a delighting experience.


The people who visit our Gelato Making Experience not only finish the day with a creamy, refreshing, delicious banquet but also as a gelato connoisseur. They learn from the differences between gelato and the industrial ice cream, to even how to produce their own authentic pezzo cremoso di Bologna.

We care about you. So even if you are a vegan or have dietary restrictions, we’ll teach you the preparation of mouth-watering original vegan/coeliacs alternatives of gelato as well.

Remember: an artisanal gelato is a healthy yet delicious alternative that can sweeten any kind of celebration or social event that you are planning. A gelato is such a versatile piece of culinary art that you can share it with your friends and family at any special moment of your life.

After leaving our laboratory, you’ll be able to surprise your guests with your original handcrafted gelato on your next social event. They will feel as if they were eating a gelato on a warm summer day in the heart of Bologna.

Pistacchio, Tiramisú, Chocolate, Stracciatella, etc.  You’ll end up creating your own favourites combinations and flavours.
