VENCHI: 1878

Silviano Venchi, a 20-year-old from Turin who loved chocolate so much that he spent his savings on two bronze cauldrons and began to experiment, first in his apartment, then in a small place on Via degli Artisti in Borgo Vanchiglia, Turin, began the history of 140 years of expert chocolate making by Venchi in 1878. The chocolate was so richly coated that the Venchi Spa was “the most elegant chocolate shop in Piedmont”, awarded, among other things, as “Purveyor to the Royal Household”. But today, the chocolate is no longer packaged under the royal coat of arms, but rather displayed and packaged inside the Venchi Italian Chocolate store/ ice cream parlor at the Brickell City Center in Miami, where you’ll find Chocoviar, truffles, Gianduiotti & Cremini, bars, Suprema spread, gelato, and gourmet eggs, among many other delicious options!
