Sciocola', a passion for chocolate in Modena

Handmade chocolate sales and tastings, cooking demonstrations, animated and entertaining shows and much more, in Modena Old Town

It is written following the Italian pronunciation: «Sciocola'», which means, simply, chocolate.

The food of the Gods is the star of the new Festival taking place in Modena Old Town from the 1st to the 4th November, which will include delicious tastings and spectacular events for people of all ages, children included, naturally. About 50 maîtres chocolatiers will take part in the Festival, introducing the audience to their all chocolate-based delicacies, including a brand new praline named Sciocola' to celebrate the Festival; chocolate nugget “kisses” with Parmesan Cheese; pralines with a creamy filling and a drop of Modena’s typical black gold: Dop balsamic vinegar; pralines with black salt and caramel. Besides traditional chocolates and some innovative creations, visitors can also let themselves be tempted by the newest “bio” and “free-from” craft products. The Festival is promoted by CNA Modena, patronaged by Modena Municipality and organized by SGP Events in cooperation with Acai and will also develop into a series of side events, featuring the “Chocolate Louvre” (an extraordinary collection of cocoa sculptures), the “Dama Vivente” (a real draught game between milk chocolate and dark chocolate live pieces), and multifaceted series of Pastry Shows, guided tours of Modena town, workshops and road-shows.
