Italian Ice Cream fame won't catch anyone by surprice, however the Firenze Gelato Festival might. Currently the biggest ice cream event in italy, takes places in the tuscan capital but also visits other cities. It was here in florence where Bernardo Buontalenti, an artist working for the Medici surpriced everyone at the inauguration dinner for the a Fortezza del Belvedere, with a cold cream made with milk, honey, egg yolks, fruits and a dash of wine, this would be the birth of the first Ice Cream recorded in history. Florence maintains its culture with this festival, where you can try the best Ice Creams in the world, both from italian and international companies. Truly the best of it's kind the Firenze Gelato Festival, is a lot of fun, great ice cream, and a must for food lovers.
