The Florence Gelato Festival is an event which brings together top gelato makers and the best gelato ingredients from Italy and abroad. Fabbri and its products will of course be taking part in the third edition of the event, which will take place from 23 to 27 May 2012.
What we are planning
Cocktail Gelato: an edible revolution
Cocktail gelatos are the brand-new creations dedicated to all the visitors at the Florence Gelato Festival who love trying new ways of enjoying gelato. There are alcohol-free cocktails which are suitable for both kids and adults, made with top quality gelato, as well as alcoholic cocktails with more sophisticated flavors for adult palates. Come and taste these delicious new creations made with Fabbri products in the bars of the squares featured in the Festival.
Gelato Shop: ingredients on sale to turn your home-made gelato into a work of art
Do you like making home-made gelato? Do you already have an ice-cream machine and top quality ingredients? Maybe you’re missing that extra ingredient, which will make your sweet creations truly awesome. At the Gelato Shop in Piazza della Repubblica you can buy the legendary Fabbri Amarena to transform your gelato into a unique experience for you and your guests.
Art and Gelato: The Fabbri Art Prize
In Piazza Santa Maria Novella, at the Alinari National Photography Museum, you can admire the 30 works of art that took part in the fourth edition of the Fabbri Art Prize, entitled “Un secolo e 7” (A century and 7). The works include paintings, sculptures and photography which represent one hundred and seven years of the history of Italy, through the icons and symbols of Fabbri.

"Taste, Vote, Win"
A new feature at the third edition of the Florence Gelato Festival is the competition “Taste, Vote, Win”, dedicated to real gelato experts. The public can taste the most successful flavors from the gelato makers taking part, fill out a postcard stating their favorite one and win one of a selection of prizes. One of the gelato makers taking part has a flavor made with our products. We don’t want to ruin the surprise, however, so come and see for yourself, and “taste”, take part and…win!
In Piazza Santa Maria Novella there will be a huge Fabbri Amarena jar, one of the universal symbols of taste and sweetness. It is 3 meters high, and is a replica of the object that symbolizes the company all over the world. Seek it, snap it and post the photo on our Facebook page.
The three main squares where the Florence Gelato Festival will take place are:
- Piazza Santa Maria Novella
- Piazza della Repubblica
- Piazza Strozzi
