Huge waiting for the couple of gelato makers which will represent Italy: Candelo Calarco, holder of the shop “L’Artigiano” in Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto (Messina) and the youg Stefano Dassie, holder of the shop “Il Gelatiere” in Treviso. These two capable gelato makers have all the intentions to enforce the tradition of a typical Italian product such as the artisanal gelato, but they’ll have to reckon the enthusiasm and professionalism of other colleagues that, in the respective National selections, have already demonstrate their capacity.
