The festival is organised in association with many other large scale events focusing on the "food of the gods", with exhibitions, workshops, internships, cooking classes, tastings, banquets and celebrations, as well as the coveted Eurochocolate Awards prize.
Each year new ideas and themes are developed for the festival. The theme for 2012 is "iChoc: Applichiamoci" - we'll post more information as it is released from the organisers.
In previous years themes have included "Prisoners of Chocolate", “City of Chocolate”, “Chokolate Revolution,” and even “Chocolage” (the evolution of chocolate).
For visitors this event is without doubt a good chance to discover this delightful medieval town and to enjoy the famous Umbrian hospitality while sampling some of the finest chocolate that Europe has to offer!
