within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

My GELATO is made daily with fresh high-quality ingredients like milk, fresh fruit, pistachios from Sicily, Piedmont hazelnuts IGP, vanilla bourbon and the best cocoa blends for a fantastic dark chocolate. Every single product is choose and selected to offer the best high-quality GELATO, this is my prerogative and the secret of my success. Enjoy it ;)
