It is Italy that gives Europe the recipe for chocolate!
The history of chocolate is mostly Italian, and not Swiss as many people think. It was in fact an Italian, Christopher Columbus, the first European to come across the cocoa bean in America and who brought it to Europe. Since then, chocolate has always had a very close relationship with Italy. It is here where, before elsewhere, so many recipes were developed that made chocolate famous around the world. From the early 1600s, chocolate became part of the Italian tradition. Mainly two cities were producing it: Florence and Venice. Since then it has been particularly loved by Italians, who appreciate it in all its forms and in all its flavors: from milk to dark chocolate, from hazelnut to pralines.
