During the course of Sciocolà Modena , there will be an opportunity to discover three major chocolate districts, Modica, Perugia and Turin, the three territories that most represent Italy’s Chocolate, and representative companies from these districts will be present at the Modena event.

To discover them, people can take advantage of a rich schedule of free events, including challenges, showcooking, tastings, gastronomic-cultural meetings, children’s workshops and traveling shows. A sensory journey where it will be possible to learn about the world of chocolate, from classics to cremini, from truffles to macarons, from liqueur dragèes to rum cunesi and the ever-present flavored bars, chocolate fountains and spreads.

The event begins immediately with a must-attend event: the cocktail designed for the event, Cocoa Black Gold, will be unveiled to taste right away the perfect combination, in liquid format, between chocolate and balsamic vinegar and made by Boutique del Dolce. Once again this year, a Modenese personage who has distinguished himself or herself will be honored with the Sciocolà d’Oro Award, and the Sciocolà in Rosa Ruby Award is established for the first time, tracing the historic award but dedicated exclusively to the pink quota.
