Perugia, home of Perugina and the most famous chocolate in the world, the Kiss, has been welcoming gourmands from all over the world since 1993 with the International Chocolate Festival.
Eurochocolate was born from the idea of Eugenio Guarducci, as an event that shows the Italian and international chocolate tradition, involving tourists, chocolate producers, who exhibit their stands in the streets of the city. In October, during the event, events and shows are organized, animating the squares of the historic center of Perugia with tasting and performance itineraries. The program changes every year, but among the most important events, there is the show of the chocolate sculptures, where the sculptors work blocks of chocolate to obtain sculptures that will remain on display for all days of the event.
Eurochocalate World is a particular section dedicated to cocoa producers from all over the world such as Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Ghana, housed inside the Rocca Paolina, presenting their customs and their flavors.
Having become an excellence in the sector, Eurochocolate was chosen as Official Content Provider of the Cocoa and Chocolate Cluster at Expo 2015.
