chocolate valleyIn the area between Pisa and Prato, including Montopoli, Monsummano Terme and Agliana, a great quality artisanal production of chocolate has developed. Indeed, it is here that the internationally renowned chocolatiers meet, together with other new generation artisans that will keep up the standard in the future. Talking about quality chocolate means talking about Federico Salza of Pisa, Simone de Castro of Montopoli (Pisa), Andrea Slitti of Monsummano Terme (Pistoia), Corsini of Pistoia, the pioneer of chocolate in Tuscany Roberto Catinari, not to mention the world champion of patisserie Luca Mannori, from Prato. During the month of January these masters, and others, took part in the display “Cioccolosità – La qualità del cioccolato toscano” (the quality of Tuscan chocolate), created to promote and highlight the great black gold of the area, which is described by the specialized press as the “Chocolate Valley”
