Padova, Italy: Where the sweetness of Villa del Conte began.

Sunday, October 26, 2014

Padova, Italy. Where the sweetness began In between Venice and Verona lies the oldest city in Northern Italy – Padova. It is surrounded by the picturesque views of Brenta River, the Ventian Plain, and Euganaean Hills. Tucked in these great sceneries are arcaded streets leading to large communal plazas.

Padova, Italy
Through the years, Padova was able to preserve its romantic ambience with architectural landmarks like the Scrovegni Chapel that houses remarkable frescoes, and the Basilica di Sant’Antonio de Padova that is splendidly decorated with carved marbles, sculptural works, and gothic details. Padova also shelters Donatello’s equestrian statue of General Gattamelata and the Prato della Valle, which is considered one of the biggest elliptical squares in Europe. A line of 78 statues surrounding a wide garden is another sight to behold.

With citizens and tourists strolling around the plazas day and night, one can notice the tranquil lifestyle in Padova. Amongst the crowded areas, a small, idyllic town nestles in the heart of Padova, Italy called Villa del Conte. It is where ancient legacies dwell, and soon became the home of world-class artisanal chocolates. The making of the finest cioccolato in Villa del Conte began in the hands of Nazzareno Cattapan. Eventually, his exceptional recipe was passed on to the following generations. Preserving this legacy today is the third-generation chocolate connoisseur Enrico Nazzareno.

For 81 years, Villa del Conte has been making exceptional chocolates especially made by their artisans. Using only handpicked cacao beans shaped to perfection, one can easily notice and taste the masterpiece of authentic Italian tradition. In addition to being a city of fine arts, religion, architecture, and academe, Padova has truly made its mark in the history as the place where premium chocolates are made from.

This is where the sweetness started.
